Overseas comparisons

  • How to read the above chart: It is on a log scale showing confirmed cases and rate of growth. The second chart begins at 100 confirmed cases. Note that the y-axes jump forward in greater and greater values, doubling at regular intervals. This is because they measure exponential growth.

  • Data sourced from Our World In Data, which now relies on Johns Hopkins data. There are limitations and variations in how different countries report confirmed COVID-19 cases. 

  • If you would like to compare specific countries, we recommend FT's interactive tracker.
