The spread of the new corona­virus

The numbers in this article only show the confirmed cases of infected and recovered people. Different countries may have different routines for if and when they test people and are likely to have a large number of unreported cases not only for the number of infected people but also for the recovered ones.


Read the method section at the bottom of the article to understand all the numbers correctly.

Cases reported by the media and other sources during the day, they are ahead of the daily updates from Johns Hopkins on which the rest of the article is based.

According to the recommendations of the Public Health Authority at this time, only persons in need of care or who are already admitted to hospitals with coronavirus symptoms should be tested. This has a significant impact on the figures for the number of cases in Sweden. The following figures are thus an under-reporting of the actual number of cases and show only those that have been tested – not all that have the corona virus.

There is some delay in reporting and supplementing data on new cases and deceased cases, so the number of recent days (especially during weekends) should be interpreted with caution. We also update historic when the Public Health Authority does.

Source and method

The numbers in this article only show the confirmed cases of infected and recovered people. Different countries may have different routines for if and when they test people and are likely to have a large number of unreported cases not only for the number of infected people but also for the recovered ones.

The top part of the article that shows new cases in Sweden is constantly updated throughout the day and may have different sources.

The rest of the graphic is updated once a day – when Johns Hopkins CSSE releases its daily data.

Hopkins data shows what the situation looked like yesterday - therefore that number for Sweden will not be the same as at the top of the article.

Japan's numbers are a compilation of reported cases from Japan and cases of passengers on the Diamond Princess ship outside Japan.

We include the islands of Saint Barthélemy and Saint Martin in France's results.
