Coronavirus statistics: Latest numbers on COVID-19 cases and deaths

The pace of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak means information is changing all the time. Here is the latest data on infection hotspots and deaths from the virus. 

The regularly updated statistics includes:

  • Global breakdown of COVID-19 deaths against active cases and recoveries from the disease
  • How coronavirus cases and COVID-19 deaths have progressed over time
  • The number of daily new COVID-19 deaths and virus cases in key European countries
  • COVID-19 death rates per 1,000 infections
  • World maps showing which countries have been worst hit in terms of deaths and cases
  • A table breaking down of total and new deaths/cases in each country

Please note the number of cases a country has, and in particular the COVID-19 deaths per 1,000 infections, can be skewed by how much testing for the new coronavirus is done.

There is also a chart showing which age groups were hit hardest by fatal cases of COVID-19 in Italy, giving an insight into who is being worst affected.
