About this data
Reuters is collecting daily COVID-19 infections and deaths data for 240 countries and territories around the world, updated regularly throughout each day.
Every country reports those figures a little differently and, inevitably, misses undiagnosed infections and deaths. With this project we are focusing on the trends within countries as they try to contain the virus’ spread, whether they are approaching or past peak infection rates, or if they are seeing a resurgence of infections or deaths.
About COVID-19 data in Germany
Reuters uses individual data from each of Germany's 16 states to calculate the daily numbers. Due to different reporting times between the states, Germany's total number evolves throughout any given day.
