Total confirmed cases
How to read this chart: It is a log scale showing confirmed cases and rate of growth. It begins at 100 confirmed cases. Note that the y-axis jumps forward in greater and greater values, doubling at regular intervals. This is because it measures exponential growth. See the linear version of this chart below.
Data sourced from Our World In Data, which relies on European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) data. There are limitations and variations in how different countries report confirmed COVID-19 cases. Read about why Our World in Data uses ECDC and some of the data limitations here.
