Of the 10 compared nations the United States is doing the very worst, with confirmed daily cases, also happens to be the one who’s had the longest experience in dealing with the Novel Coronavirus. With over 4.1 million cases and over 145,000 deaths it stands has having about a quarter of the world’s total numbers.

One would think that a nation as rich and powerful as America would not be behaving like a third world nation. Yet, a good portion of the United States are seeing increasing numbers of cases.

Following is each country, followed by the dates of its first reported case and the total number of cases and deaths.

United States, January 21 / 4,112,531 Cases and 145,546 deaths.

Brazil, February 25 / 2,287,475 cases, and 85,238 deaths.

India, January 29 /  1,337,024 cases, and 31,358 deaths.

Peru, March 5 / 375,961 cases, and 17,843 deaths.

Mexico, February 27 / 378,285 cases, and 42,645 deaths

Colombia, March 5 / 233,541 cases, and 7,975 deaths.

South Africa, March 4 / 421,996 cases, and 6,343 deaths.

Iran, February 18 / 286,523 cases, and 15,289 deaths.

Kyrgyzstan, March 17 / 31,247 cases, and 1,211 deaths.

Russia, January 30 / 799,499 cases, and 13,026 deaths.

Have countries flattened the curve?

Countries around the world are working to “flatten the curve” of the coronavirus pandemic. Flattening the curve involves reducing the number of new COVID-19 cases from one day to the next. This helps prevent healthcare systems from becoming overwhelmed. When a country has fewer new COVID-19 cases emerging today than it did on a previous day, that’s a sign that the country is flattening the curve.

On a trend line of total cases, a flattened curve looks how it sounds: flat. On the charts on this page, which show new cases per day, a flattened curve will show a downward trend in the number of daily new cases.

This analysis uses a 5-day moving average to visualize the number of new COVID-19 cases and calculate the rate of change. This is calculated for each day by averaging the values of that day, the two days before, and the two next days. This approach helps prevent major events (such as a change in reporting methods) from skewing the data. The interactive charts below show the daily number of new cases for the 10 most affected countries, based on the reported number of deaths by COVID-19 per 100,000 population and having more than 1 million inhabitants.
