The charts below show daily and total case trends. Data is added, and charts updated, after the close of the day (GMT+0).

Total Cases (worldwide)

"Total Cases" = total cumulative count (76,738). This figure therefore includes deaths and recovered or discharged patients (cases with an outcome).

Daily Cases (worldwide)

The spike observed on Feb. 12 is the result, for the most part, of a change in diagnosis classification for which 13,332 clinically (rather than laboratory) confirmed cases were all reported as new cases on Feb. 12, even though they were diagnosed in the preceding days and weeks. We will distribute these cases over the correct period once the analysis being conducted by the WHO with China's NHC is completed.

Growth Factor of Daily New Cases

Growth factor is the factor by which a quantity multiplies itself over time. The formula used is every day's new cases / new cases on the previous day. For example, a quantity growing by 7% every period (in this case daily) has a growth factor of 1.07.

A growth factor above 1 indicates an increase, whereas one which remains between 0 and 1 it is a sign of decline, with the quantity eventually becoming zero, whereas a growth factor constantly above 1 could signal exponential growth

By removing deaths and recoveries from total cases, we get "currently infected cases" or "active cases" (cases still awaiting for an outcome).
