2020 Coronavirus

Millions (not the good kind)

How quickly is the COVID-19 pandemic spreading around the world, one wondered.

76 days to the first million, 12 days for 2, 3, 4, and 5 million, and as of July 18th, 2020, 5 days from 12 million to 13 million.

note: Situation Report 209 was the final daily COVID-19 Situation Report. “Beginning tomorrow [August 17, 2020] we will begin publishing the COVID-19 Weekly Epidemiological Update which will focus on analysis and interpretation of the evolving epidemiological situation.”

another note (see Data Overview and Visualizations section): Starting June 19th, 2021, “daily counts of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths reported to the WHO headquarters on Saturdays and Sundays will be updated on the following Monday.”
