The Financial Times has a nice COVID-19 dashboard that shows the growth in confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world, including for US states, but I haven’t seen a great version of these charts for Canadian provinces. I borrowed some of the methodology from that page to come up with some Canada-centric charts. Hopefully these will be helpful for some people. The data comes from the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 resource center, which they’ve shared publicly in this GitHub repo.
I can’t guarantee the accuracy of the information here, but it should be consistent with what you can find on the Johns Hopkins dashboard. Please send me a message on Twitter if you find anything that seems suspicious.
According to the latest data, as of 2020-04-09 there have been 20,641 confirmed cases reported in Canada, resulting in 502 deaths. Breakdowns by province are below.
|Province||Most Recent Data||Confirmed Cases||New Cases||Average Daily Growth Rate (Last 7 days)|
|Prince Edward Island||2020-04-09||25||0||1.9%|
|Province||Most Recent Data||Total Deaths||New Deaths||Average Daily Growth Rate (Last 7 days)|
Confirmed Cases Since The 10th Case
This chart shows the number of confirmed cases in each province, with the number of days since the 10th case on the x-axis. I’ve included New York State and Washington State for comparison, since those are two of the major US outbreaks. The dashed lines indicate how this chart would look if doubling the number of cases took 2, 3, or 4 days.
Growth Rate in Confirmed Cases Since 10th Confirmed Case
This plot shows the daily growth rate of confirmed cases since the 10th confirmed case. We want this to go to zero.
Confirmed Cases Over Time
This chart shows the number of confirmed cases on each date.
Deaths Since 3rd Death
This chart shows the number of deaths since the third date in each province or state.
Deaths Over Time
This shows the number of deaths on each date (min 3 deaths). Note, I am not sure why Quebec dips for a few days, but this is consistent with the data provided by the JHU dashboard.
This chart shows the number of confirmed cases since the tenth confirmed cases in a few selected countries.
The data that I used to produce these charts is below.
