COVID-19 Indicators

The COVID-19 database of the Lancet Commission on COVID-19 contains over 3 million data points and more than 100 indicators. The data has been collected from a range of sources, including Johns Hopkins University, Our World in Data, Oxford, YouGov, and Google. The database is updated daily from Monday to Friday.

DescriptionSource
The cumulative total of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Confirmed cases include presumptive positive cases and probable cases, in accordance with CDC guidelines as of April 14.Johns Hopkins University
The cumulative total of deaths from COVID-19. Death totals in the US include confirmed and probable, in accordance with CDC guidelines as of April 14.Johns Hopkins University
The cumulative total of recoveries from COVID-19. Recovered cases outside China are estimates based on local media reports, and state and local reporting when available, and therefore may be substantially lower than the true number.Johns Hopkins University

New tests for COVID-19 (7-day smoothed). For countries that don't report testing data on a daily basis, we assume that testing changed equally on a daily basis over any periods in which no data was reported. This produces a complete series of daily figures, which is then averaged over a rolling 7-day windowOur World in Data
