Covid-19 Statistics



Covid-19 Statistics  (updated DAILY by 12:00 PM EST):

  • The number of total cases is unknowable since almost all testing is done in hospitals on extreme cases.  There are likely millions of cases that have resolved with no complications & minimal symptoms and some with no symptoms at all.
  • The most vulnerable are those with compromised lung function, such as in smokers.
  • Death is usually caused via a secondary pneumonia in those whose health is already compromised.
  • The trajectory for the ‘death rate’ for the United States will likely reach a peak sometime in April, where it will then move sideways for a period, before falling.  The trajectory is already starting to bend to the right.
