Statistics and graph are updated daily so you can see when the curve begins to flatten and we can discuss what it means:

I've updated the PDF file with statistics and graphs through 2020-03-24. Users can also download XLS spreadsheet with both statistics and graphs, and JPG versions of the US and worldwide graphs of confirmed cases and deaths. The US cases continue to rise sharply with more testing, but the increase in US deaths decreased by 10 for the first time in a week. It may just be noise due to reporting timing. The next few days will tell. The alternate file format files are here:

Tonday 2020-03-25 I updated the coronavirus statistics to include daily US death rate of change:

Sadly the death rate has more than doubled in the last 4 days.

Today 2020-03-26 sadly the US daily death rate has doubled in 2 days from 122 to 244.

Check out the John Hopkins Research Interactive Map which is updated hourly with data from the WHO and CDC:

The map now shows that the US exceeds all other countries in number of confirmed cases including China, Italy, and Spain. If you click on US cases, you can see the subtotals for cities, counties, and states.

@dsh33782 Thank you Don, for doing this every day. I am not surprised to see the change like you show – remember that yesterday was reflecting weekend numbers, when reporting may not have been at peak efficiency, so today's numbers are perhaps showing the reporting catching up with the reality. Overall, I am heartened to see that the number of new cases reported have "flattened" for several days – hanging at about 20,000 new cases per day, even though it becomes a smaller percentage of total cases reported – it may indicate that isolation is helping.

It will be interesting to see if we begin to see the number of new cases decline as isolation goes on.

The second concern I have is that the numbers reported, as alarming as they are, are only test-confirmed cases of the virus. We KNOW there are many people symptomatic but untested due to shortages, so the public needs to assume that this virus is far more common that reported.

Stay calm, Stay home & Stay safe.

Sue, thanks for reply and analysis. I agree the confirmed cases totals do not tell the whole story. The US testing is ramping up but is 3 times lower than Italy and Spain on a per capita basis according to news reports. Once we get comprehensive testing available with rapid results, then we can better manage the responses.

@colleenyoung

Hi Don,

You look like you like to see things in numbers. Where are you getting the data for your graphs? My go-to for reliable information is the Center for Disease Control https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html

If you use Twitter @EricTopol https://twitter.com/EricTopol is good source for data-driven information from a variety of sources.

Mayo Clinic News Network wrote this article to explain the importance of flattening the curve https://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/covid-19-flattening-the-curve/

This meme is a great visual for social distancing:
