New crown epidemic: a list of the latest global data

The New Coronary Pneumonia virus continues to spread throughout the world. There have been confirmed cases in 188 countries around the world. The total number of confirmed cases has exceeded 6 million, and nearly 400,000 people have been killed.

The following series of maps and charts track the situation of the new global epidemic since the outbreak in China in December last year.

Confirmed and dead cases

This virus can cause a respiratory infectious disease "Coronavirus 2019 (Covid-19)", which was first discovered in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

During the first few months of 2020, it spread rapidly around the world.

Note: The French data used in the maps and charts of this article are different from the data of Johns Hopkins University, so the total number of cases is relatively low.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the country with the largest number of confirmed cases to date is the United States, accounting for nearly one-third of the global total. The number of deaths in the United States is also the highest in the world.

In Europe, the countries most affected by the epidemic are the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Spain.

According to official Chinese statistics, the number of confirmed cases is 84,000, and the number of deaths is about 4,600. However, some critics believe that the authenticity of China's official data is in doubt .

Chart: More than 6 million new coronavirus cases worldwide

On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the epidemic a global pandemic. The WHO usually makes this decision when an infectious disease can easily spread from person to person in multiple parts of the world.

The WHO warned that we are still far from the end of the new crown epidemic, and that there may be new rapid outbreaks, especially in areas where the closure policy is lifted, and people should be prepared for this.

Since many people with mild symptoms are not detected and included in the statistics, the actual number of cases is expected to be much higher than the reported data.

Agence France-Presse estimates that at least 4.5 billion people worldwide currently live under the policy of maintaining social distance, which accounts for half of the global population.

These policies have a severe impact on the global economy. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) warned that the world may face the worst economic recession since the Great Depression in the 1930s.

The United Nations World Food Programme also warned that this pandemic could nearly double the number of people suffering from extreme hunger.
