Description - Coronavirus COVID-19 statistics

Notable authorative reporting of the disease

Herein lies my best understanding of the coronavirus situation.
If you have received this file first hand, you know who I am.
On 19/03/20 3:51am ESDT Australia, the https://www.news.com.au/topics/coronavirus website claims the world community has
been aware of this virus has existed for:

Days since the virus was discovered

From the New Scientist magazine
From: https://www.newscientist.com/term/covid-19/
Cases of Covid-19 first emerged in December 2019, when a mysterious illness was reported in Wuhan, China. The cause of the
disease was soon confirmed as a new kind of coronavirus, and the infection has spread to a number of countries around the world.

On 11 February the World Health Organization announced that the official name would be covid-19, a shortened version of
coronavirus disease 2019. The WHO refers to the specific virus that causes this disease as the covid-19 virus.

2) From website https://www.worldometers.info
From: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
Statistics worldwide of the coronavirus situation.
Statistics include global infections, deaths, recoveries and more,…
Country by country infections, deaths, recoveries and more,…
Latest updates.
And the source of each of the statistics.

The data presentation is terrific.
Data can be sorted by any column.
The main table is,…
Confirmed Cases and Deaths by Country, Territory, or Conveyance
The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting 165 countries and territories around the world and 1 international conveyance (the Diamond
Princess cruise ship harbored in Yokohama, Japan). The day is reset after midnight GMT+0. The "New" columns for China display
the previous day changes (as China reports after the day is over). For all other countries, the "New" columns display the changes
for the current day while still in progress.
Country, Other Total Cases New Cases Total Deaths New Deaths Total
Recovered Active Cases Serious, Critical Tot Cases/ 1M pop
Afghanistan 22 +1 1 21 0.6
Albania 55 +4 1 54 2 19.1
Algeria 61 +1 5 +1 10 46 1.4

3) From website for News dot com
From: https://www.news.com.au/topics/coronavirus
Surprisingly good summary of the Australian situation to start with.
A pie chart and Australian map with the simple stats (Coronavirus cases? But no definition or source).
A bar graph for the major world stats (10 countries or so).
Then the news dot com stories.

4) From website for Commonwealth Department of Health for Australia
From: https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-current-
The official Health Department page for COVID-19 for the current situation, latest case numbers and related information.
The first line reads as,…
Coronavirus (COVID-19) current situation and case numbers
We are managing the COVID-19 outbreak in Australia as a health emergency. We will update this page every day with the current
situation, latest case numbers and related information.

5) From website youtube
This is a live streaming youtube coronavirus information site.
The sites author claims he is a South Korean dentist with a particular interest in gathering and presenting data on the coronavirus
situation. He claims that he has been busy using python (a programming language) to gather and present coronavirus data.

6) From a website run by volunteers about Australian COVID-19 statistics
The last page of the site names the sites author, supporters and collaborators.
From: https://www.covid19data.com.au/
The opening page of the site reads as follows:
“Coronavirus (COVID-19)in Australia
Data is based on media reports and verified with updates from state and federal health departments. Last updated: 10.30pm, 18
March 2020 (AEDT).  New charts: daily view of confirmed cases. This site is run by volunteers. Please consider supporting it”.

The first graph titled “Total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia” is particularly interesting and shows the exponential growth
of confirmed cases in Australia from 25/01/20”.

Another graph “COVID-19 in Australia: overseas vs local transmissions”.
Provides the source of infections.
This graph is also particularly interesting.
Statistics include:
Travel-related transmissions
Local transmissions (no OS travel)
Unknown, Undisclosed
Speculation: If the Unknown and Undisclosed mean “Community transmission” defined as “~unknown source”, then these
numbers mean, “No patient zero for this infection - The source of the person’s infection is from the general population. A wrong
place at the wrong time misfortune. Although the probability is small, these infected people could include you.

Another great graph is “About the people affected”.
It uses the Unicode <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode> symbol for male persons (like the famous Ming Warriors terracotta
soldiers <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terracotta_Army>) to show the infection, recovered and death numbers for Australian
COVID-19 casualties. This graph is confronting as it both personalizes and humanizes (Mmmpfh? American z spelling MS Word
autocorrect) being a COVID-19 casualty in Australia looks and feels like. It eulogies this statistic.

Other graphs well worth a look:
The age distribution bar chart for Australian cases.
Sources, events and links of local transmissions.

My understanding of the current modelling data for Australia claims the peak for this country will occur in 45 days. Please draw your
own conclusions what this means for you and what you need to do to prepare as well as you can and if you believe there are gods,
