COVID 19 Graph Race: Total Confirmed Coronavirus Cases by Country | Bar Chart Race [Updated 8 May]

This COVID 19 graph race shows the updated COVID-19 pandemic timeline as of 8 May 2020. More specifically, we will observe the data on total confirmed coronavirus cases by country from 1 March 2020 to 8 May 2020.

This highly infectious disease (COVID-19) was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei province on 31 December 2019. Since then, it has spread to almost all countries around the world, triggering governmental intervention of varying degree in attempts to reduce and contain the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.

From this coronavirus graph, as of 8 May 2020, the COVID-19 has infected 3.807 million people worldwide and caused a death toll of about 269 thousand people. In relation to the current data, the global case fatality rate (CFR) now sits at a staggering 7.07%.

Note that the United Nations geoscheme devised by United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD) is utilized to group countries/economies/territories according to their macro-geographical location for the purpose of statistical analysis. Therefore, the resulting classification by no means represents the political status or any other affiliation of the countries or entities in question.

Objectives of This Video:

1) To find out the 10 hardest-hit countries by the COVID-19 in terms of total confirmed coronavirus cases from 1 March 2020 to 8 May 2020.
2) To visually inspect the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak across the globe from the perspective of total confirmed coronavirus cases over time with the help of the COVID 19 graph race.

Some of the countries with the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases as depicted in the bar chart race are United States, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Russian Federation, Germany, France, Brazil, Turkey and Iran.

This video is part of the video series called “COVID-19: Vital Coronavirus Statistics Coverage” created to observe, among other things, the latest update and development of the coronavirus pandemic using COVID 19 graph race.
