Some Governments Don’t Like Coronavirus Statistics
I brought you the charts of infection and death today because I saw that many people are unaware of the numbers. Also in some countries, politicians and the press are reluctant to mention statistics. Elsewhere, they only analyze their own country and a few more important areas in the news. And investors should consider other countries where the virus is beginning to spread now. These numbers are very important today. Because of economic links, international trade, re-infection waves, possible recurrence of the epidemic, and so on.
The Covid-19 epidemic extinguished over 200,000 lives by Saturday, April 25, 2020. Approximately 2.9 million people have been diagnosed with the infection. But real numbers can be much higher, according to almost all experts. They say, up to ten times as many people may have gone unnoticed or with mild symptoms of the infection as the official number. Many deaths have not been investigated or have been reported as caused by other illnesses. (There are also countries, now, in the 21st century where the infection doesn’t even exist, officially. The government forbade mentioning the epidemic.) In some countries, the epidemic seems to be just at the beginning.
Chart the Coronavirus By Country (DIY)
“Don’t give me fish, teach me how to fish,” the old quote says. So, I’ll show you how to create your chart of any country. This way you can easily do it yourself (DIY). On the charts, the infected are marked with the code “CONFIRMED” and the fatalities “DEATHS” in the Tradingview system. If you are interested in each country, we only need to put the code for that country behind it. For example, “DEATHS_ES” is the number of people who have died in Spain, “CONFIRMED_RU” and “CONFIRMED_EG” is the number of people infected in Russia and Egypt. Select the option “Full-featured chart” to the right to use various data series at the same time. If you have problems – like lines not showing on the chart –, try to zoom the chart in, or out. Or, move the drawing area to the left or right.
The second chart shows the figures for Turkey and Brazil as an example. The first chart, the global data. Statistics are based on the worldwide collected data by the “Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University”. As sad as they are, we can’t put our heads in the sand and escape from reality. Especially not if we are investors. Stay safe and protect your family! Don’t help the virus to spread further! You can save the lives of others with your caution!
