World Data

Symptoms

The main symptoms of the new coronavirus are:
- a high fever
- a dry cough
- shortness of breath.
The symptoms are similar to the flu, but can quickly become severe in people with weakened immune systems.

Prevention

There are lots of ways to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus:
- avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, or mouth
- wash your hands after touching any shared or public surface
- wash your hands before handling food, drinks, eating, or drinking
- wash your hands with soap and running water for at least 30 seconds
- use hand sanitiser if you cannot wash your hands
- cough into a tissue and throw it away afterwards
- avoid sick people wherever possible
- stay at least 2 metres apart from people who are not in your own household

About the Data

Cases

The UK is still largely limiting its coronavirus testing to those who show severe respiratory symptoms and go to a hospital. As a result, the actual number of cases is likely to be much higher than officially reported. The cases recorded on this site may be used to identify the number of individuals with severe symptoms or who are among the NHS workers who have been tested for the virus without severe symptoms.

Deaths

The UK death toll released on Gov.uk and on the Public Health England dashboard do not include the latest death rates for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Consequently, the UK death toll by the government and daily reported increase are out of date. The up-to-date number of deaths reported in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are recorded on this site.
If you do not believe that the data on this site is accurate, please check the following sources each day for accurate figures:
Scottish Government, Public Health Agency Northern Ireland, and Public Health Wales.

Additionally, the number of deaths in the UK is higher than the reported totals by each national government. At present, the UK only includes deaths from coronavirus that were reported by hospitals. It does not include data from those who passed away in their own homes or carehomes. It is likely that the death toll is several hundred cases higher than presently reported. Deaths that occur in England and Wales outside of hospitals are reported by the Office of National Statistics (ONS). The data can be found on the ONS site every week.

Tests

From April 6, Gov.uk began including the total number of tests concluded, including those who have been tested multiple times for clinical reasons. As a result, the testing data from April 5-6 increased by 57,688, accounting for a large increase in the data. However, the actual number of tests completed on April 6 was 13,323.
Note: Testing on April 7 did not include Manchester, or Leeds in its testing figures. Gov.uk also excluded data from Northern Ireland, which has been included on this site.
