COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS / About Worldometer

Worldometer manually analyzes, validates, and aggregates data from thousands of sources in real time and provides global COVID-19 live statistics for a wide audience of caring people around the world... We collect and process data around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Multiple updates per minute are performed on average by our team of analysts and researchers who validate the data from an ever-growing list of over 5,000 sources under the constant solicitation of users who alert us as soon as an official announcement is made anywhere around the world.

Sources and Methods

Our sources include Official Websites of Ministries of Health or other Government Institutions and Government authorities' social media accounts. Because national aggregates often lag behind the regional and local health departments' data, part of our work consists in monitoring thousands of daily reports released by local authorities. Our multilingual team also monitors press briefings' live streams throughout the day...


Total Cases = reported total cumulative count of detected and laboratory-confirmed positive, presumptive, suspect, or probable cases of detected infection... The size of the gap between detected and reported cases versus actual cases will depend on the number of tests performed and on the country's transparency in reporting. Most estimates have put the number of undetected cases at several multiples of detected cases. 

Active Cases = (total cases) - (total deaths) - (recovered).

Recoveries = this statistic is highly imperfect, because reporting can be missing, incomplete, incorrect, based on different definitions, or dated... In some countries, when a patient is discharged from the hospital it is counted as "recovered" even if no test is performed... "Active Cases" and "Closed Cases Outcome" which depend on the number of recoveries, an accurate death count and a satisfactory rate of case detection - which are lacking in the vast majority of countries - can be affected, and for the total worldwide count.

Serious and Critical = similarly to recoveries, it is very imperfect, for many of the same reasons... It represents for the most part the number of patients currently being treated in Intensive Care Unit (ICU), if and when this figure is reported.

Total Deaths = cumulative number of deaths among detected cases.

Reporting Issues

On a daily basis, we encounter an increasing number of reporting issues. Some of these include official governmental channels changing or retracting figures, or publishing contradictory data on different official outlets.


I have all data to date. Just not had time to publish it yet. Coming soon...

I've been following COVID-19 closely now since early February. While the situation in China was absolutely shocking because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) absolutely failed its people and provided no public information for two months that the virus was in their midst, that is an administrative problem. It is not a problem of this virus. A government's cold-heartedness towards its population is not the fault of the virus.

What I see here in statistics is this:  If left unattended (as in the China case), this virus has the power and potential to do some pretty horrific damage. If notified and brought to public attention, this virus gets stopped in its tracks. It is most definitely worthwhile tracking it.

The acid test for this virus is not case numbers... It is critical cases. That's because: Once hospital and medical resources become stretched in a country, very bad things can indeed happen. Italy is a culture where people go around grabbing and kissing everyone not once, not twice... but three times - just to make sure that random strangers and distance acquaintances really get a good dose of COVID-19 all over their skin and aerosolised around their face!  As a result, Italy's stats have gone from 15 deaths per million to 380 deaths per million in just 1 month! - and this is under belated quarantine conditions! ie: If you're too late to take this thing seriously and to quarantine, your country is in for a very tough struggle up ahead, eg: Sweden.

Conclusion: This virus is going to kill a lot less people than what we were first told. I'm sure it was designed to take out a lot more people that what it is going to. If you don't know about Agenda 21 yet, check out #GeorgiaGuidestones This virus is quite possibly the last shot across the bow that the power-brokers have been able to affect before all of the pedophiles and child rapists who pose as politicians, bureaucrats and administrators in countries all over the world, are arrested !!!!

Nice attempt guys. However:
