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.

Daily statistics in Europe

There have been at least 17,207,000 reported infections and 392,000 reported deaths caused by the novel coronavirus in Europe so far.

New infections reported by region

Of every 100 infections last reported around the world, about 33 were reported from countries in Europe. The region is currently reporting a million new infections about every 5 days and has reported more than 17,207,000 since the pandemic began.

Who’s at the peak in Europe?

We want to know where infections are trending up or down relative to the size of the outbreak in each country. So in these charts we use the rolling 7-day average of the new infections countries report each day and compare where that average is now to where it was at its peak.

The percent of that peak a country currently reports gives us a better idea of how far it is from containing the spread of the virus relative to the worst days of its outbreak.

What you need to know

These charts emphasize the countries that are in the worst stage of their outbreaks, rather than the ones that are reporting the most infections. Keep in mind that the comparison will be affected if a country changes the way it reports or counts COVID-19 infections. Changing the count may mean the peak point of comparison would have been higher or lower if the country reported infections then the way it does now.
