Tracking COVID-19: numbers

We have found that the COVID-19 case trackers below present results validated by several sources. These trackers are frequently used by news outlets to inform the public with daily changes in case numbers.

As a note of caution, the numbers presented by these trackers include only the official cases. Each country has their own approach to counting and reporting cases. The main consideration here being that A) a lot of a-symptomatic and mild cases are not recorded; B) some deaths out of hospitals are also not being recorded/measured/tested as COVID-19 related deaths; C) the actual mortality rate (case fatality rate) will be different (most likely lower) than current estimates.
