Covid-19 in Numbers

Daily updates of high-level statistics from the current Covid-19 outbreak.

Page last updated: 1 April 2020

Global Cases

These charts are based on 639807 reported global cases.

The outbreak started in China in late 2019 and by March 2020 the disease has spread to countries around the world.

Some of the public anxiety exhibited in the past weeks has been disproportionate to the oversll risk posed by Covid-19 as we understand it today. Globally there have been approximately 42352 deaths related to the virus since the outbreak began in the fall of 2019. And while older people and those with pre-existing respiratory conditions have cause for concern, a large majority of people who get coronavirus develop mild symptoms they can treat at home. Some will have no symptoms at all.

The purpose of this page is to aggregate existing research, bring together the relevant data and give context to the coronavirus outbreak.

If you are worried about managing the symptoms of coronavirus please spesk to NHS 111 or book an appointment with one of our GPs.

UK Cases (reported)

As of 1 April 2020, the number of people who have tested positive for the coronavirus in the UK has risen to a total of 25150, with the death toll at 1789.

However, it is important to put these numbers into context of the wider population, and the age and health of the deceased.

UK cases by location

Context for the following chart is key. London has the highest concentration of airports, hospitals, and people in the country.

UK vs. Rest of the World (%)

In early March the UK government announced that only those seriously ill in hospital would be tested moving forward + anyone who has any symptoms should self-isolate at home for seven days, without notifying the NHS. This dramatically reduces our ability to know with any great certainty the exact U.K numbers.

Unfortunately the statistics around loss of life due to coronavirus are also unclear because many 'at home' cases will be written up in verdicts as 'unknown' rather than death by Covid-19.

Vala Case Data (%)

The following chart breaks down the casework we're covering at the moment. It helps to put Covid-19 into context.

Although we're not able to officially diagnose over video consultation, we can spot the symptoms of Covid + help people manage the symptoms if they have them.

We are seeing a lot of people who are worried they have Covid-19 but don't display the symptoms.
