A quick look at COVID-19 on a per capita basis


I don鈥檛 think it鈥檚 easy for most of us to make sense of the number of COVID-19 infections, especially as we鈥檙e recording more new infections daily. This website has some useful stats, and I was interested to see how we compared per capita.
   I know others might get more utility seeing how we creep up the scale (I notice a few of these graphs) but as a snapshot, I found this useful. I鈥檝e thrown in other countries for comparison鈥檚 sake. The numbers deal with total infections (i.e. no subtractions are made for recovered cases).

COVID-19 cases per 1,000,000
Italy 1,056路9
Spain 751路6
Germany 347路1
France 304路4
Sweden 204路3
South Korea 176路3
USA 139路7
UK 98路1
Singapore 87路2
Australia 84路1
Mainland China 56路5
Canada 55路5
Hong Kong 47路7
New Zealand 32路2
KSA 16路2
Taiwan 9

   I realize our numbers are set to rise because of Kiwis coming home and the virus incubation period, and the numbers will be reflecting our border situation and containment measures from two weeks ago rather than today. I鈥檓 looking forward to the day when the daily announcement of new infections shows a drop.
