E :  World COVID-19 data this day

(ce même article, mais en français)


From Johns Hopkins CSSE


JH CSSE - April 14, 2020 at 6h10m55s


185 countries of the world, sampled by Johns Hopkins CSSE this morning.



World Population (to allow calculation of world prevalence of COVID-19) :


World Population - April 14, 2020 at 07h22m53s


Raw and Derived Data :

CSI - April 14, 2020



 Above Raw and Derived data, as PDF



  • The CoronaStavelot Index (CSI) increased from yesterday, 0.024216%, to today's value of 0.025134%. That's a 3.79% increase in prevalence around the world. Yesterday: 4.11%. Day before: 4.65%.  Three days ago : 6.01%.  Increasing at a slower rate. We'll continue to take what we can get. 
  • The CSI represents the best estimate of Total Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 (from Hopkins) on this date, at this time, ... divided by the best estimate of the Total World Population (Census bureau) at the same date and time.
  • One can express it as: "Total Confirmed Cases of COVID-19, represent 25.1 one-thousandths of 1% of the Total World Population." An increase since yesterday. That's an estimate of prevalence of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the global population.

Trends 3 - April 14, 2020


  • (red bar): the number of people in the world Currently ill with COVID-19, compared with this value on February 27, increased by 2,801%. (More people Actively Sick at present, when compared with 27 February).
  • (green bar): the Confirmed Cases of COVID-19, compared with those of February 27, increased by 2,238%. This is the change in "world prevalence."
    • (This counts the cases, independent of current status or final outcome. i.e., it includes thosewho have died and recovered from their illness).  It is an answer to the question: "Just how much of this disease have we had since the start?"
  • (blue bar): the Deaths due to COVID-19, compared with those of February 27, increased by 82.8%. Yesterday, 81.1%. Day before : 79.6%
  • (yellow bar): Total Recovery after COVID-19, compared with those of February 27, decreased by -41.08%. Yesterday, -41.89%. The day before:  -43.19%. Negative values are always a little harder to understand. On February 27, 40% of thise who had become infected with COVID-19, had recovered. Today April 12, 23.59% of those infected have recovered, 23.27%, yesterday.  Day before: 22.75%. New cases are still outpacing the recovery.



  • COVID-19 is still increasing throughout the world, but at a slower rate
  • Deaths from COVID-19 remain an infrequent outcome, but continue to increase slightly.
  • Recovery from COVID-19 is gradual but constant. 453,145 people who had it, have now recovered.


Change in number of Active Cases

Change in Actively ILL - 14 APril, 2020



  • The number of Actively Sick with COVID-19 continues to increase worldwide.
  • This value of Actively Sick has now increased (29.0 x) to 2,801% above that value on February 27.
  • Number of actual Actively Sick calculated from the Johns Hopkins data this morning, is 1,348,154 worldwide. The equation predicts slightly more for this day: 1,416,226. This is 68,072 ABOVE the actual value. Yesterday: 62,105 ABOVE actual. So the total of actively ill worldwide, continues to increase, but at a rate that is slower than predicted. Same conclusion yesterday.
  • This third order polynomial or quadratic relationship defines the data up to today quite well, (on target 99.56% of the time) with an error in this estimate of 5,049%, slightly above actual cases. Yesterday: 4,756% error.
  • It suggests that if nothing changes in the variables that determine those Actively Sick worldwide, this value will be at 1,489,416 tomorrow.
  • Notice also that the coefficient for the powerful x³ variable (the first in the equation), has now become negative.


In PlainSpeak ...

At the present time, those Actively Sick with COVID-19 worldwide continue to increase in number.

The rate of increase is currently slowing day by day.

The above equation is adjusted each day with new data. If one applies yesterday's equation to today's actual value, it over-predicts today's actual value by about 7%. The coefficient for the x³ variable continues to decrease from 3.2804 two days ago, to 1.0501 yesterday, to - 1.1869 today. Things seem to be heading for a turn ...



Globally, more people became sick with COVID-19 once again since yesterday, but at a slower rate. 


Prevalence ( how much disease burden by country? ) - sample of 25 countries

All values are current as of this morning, Monday, April 14, 2020 at 8:08AM.


Prevalence - 14 April


Above prevalences, ranked (25 countries)

Prevalence - 14 April, 2020


Presented with number of Days of Infection

Prevalence by Days of infection - April 14


Sorted by Deaths per million inhabitants :

Prevalence - Deaths per million - 14 April, 2020

Interpretation :

  • Of these 25 countries that we have been following ...
    • Belgium is now number 3 in prevalence ( cases per million inhabitants)
    • For the countries with about the same number of days of infection (days since the virus first arrived), such as the UK, Spain, and Italy, Belgium has a Death Rate (336.77/ mill.) slightly below Italy's (338.48/ mill.) and Spain's (379.77/ mil.), and much higher than that of the United Kingdom (167.15/ mill.)
    • Belgium is now numbe 3 among these 25 countries selected for comparison, for Death Rate.



Nevertheless, most will recover. If not soon, eventually.

Recovered - April 14, 2020



Unfortunately, some are still dying of COVID-19.

USA has now experienced more deaths than Italy.

Belgium has now had 588 deaths more (3,903), than the deaths experienced in China (3,315).

Actively Sick with COVID-19  (est. 79.6% mild; 13.6% severe; 4.9% critical), 25 countries 

Actively ILL - April 14, 2020



I notice, of the countries around the one where I live, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and now Spain: making progress.



Time to continue your list of the positives arising from all of this. Here are my entries : 

  1. Less debate and argument; more Solidarity.
  2. Reduction in CO2 and greenhouse gases.
  3. Decide to just get up and go nowhere.
  4. Time for expression: write a poem, play some music.
  5. Notice: where I live, the move towards Spring is well under way (green and growing).
  6. Moments of humor, when laughing happens spontaneously. Even when alone.
  7. Flowers from the garden, placed in a vase as a reminder of life, each time I pass. Looking closely.
  8. Greeting the deer who come down in the morning to see how we're doing and where we've been.
  9. An opportunity still exists for taking a nice warm bath. And this day, no rush.
  10. Find even small improvements in a situation, and let them grow inside of yourself, thereby helping them to grow even more outside of yourself. That those actively ill are still increasing in number worldwide is true. That this rate of increase now seems to be diminishing, is also true and to be supported by doing all that we are currently doing (social distancing and hygiene) and not doing (grouping together).
  11. Thankful for all the suppliers who make shopping for food, still possible.
  12. Very grateful to all those who have participated so far in our questionnaire, guiding our work here.
  13. A noticeble quiet in our sourroundings.
  14. Bill collectors seem much less active.
  15. There are moments of mental lucidity. For example: I had already lived through some crappy periods in my life, but I think this one takes the cake.
  16. Thankful to not have to be on the front lines as this approaches. Praying for those who are.
  17. Centering : spending more time doing things that should make a difference. Less counting.
  18. "Hope springs eternal in the human breast."
  19. Distance may separate me physically from my family. But we are constantly with each other. That can never be confined.
  20. Grateful for all those who sell and deliver items purchased online. It's still possible. (But wipe the box with Clorox before opening! (Didn't use to do that) ...
  21. An increase in the numbers of moments of absolute silence.
  22. Math can be tedious. A times very revealing. And that's a positive.
  23. Sleeping. Solid as a rock.
  24. There seems to be an increased ability to listen. To others, but also to oneself.
  25. Land mines do not usually go off by themselves. You have to step on them. Stay isolated !
  26. Essential items are recognized more easily.
  27. Imagine if one day somebody appears and says: "You know, all this confinement stuff was not really necessary. All you had to do was ... " Couldn't you just punch a guy like that in the face?
  28. Returning to things ignored for too long (working in the quiet and smells of the greenhouse).
  29. Identifying more clearly, one's limits of patience.
  30. Actually comforted by being able to get away from crowds.
