Coronavirus world map: We've now passed the 500 million mark for infections
A map of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths around the world. The respiratory disease has spread rapidly across six continents and has killed millions.

Explore the chart below to find a country-by-country breakdown of new and total cases since January.
In late spring and early summer, new COVID-19 cases were largely driven by cases in the Americas. While the U.S. has consistently had the most new daily cases of coronavirus in the region, Brazil's new daily cases increased rapidly between May and August.
However, in September, several countries that had previously flattened their curve saw a resurgence in cases, including Spain and France. In India, daily case counts have risen swiftly since June.
Explore how the number of coronavirus cases have shifted in different parts of the world over time. The first chart compares each continent to each other, while the next charts highlight the number of cases in select countries by region.
To compare country outbreaks, the chart below graphs trend lines for average new daily cases and deaths against each country's totals to date. This type of visualization highlights a state's daily growth or decline relative to the overall size of its outbreak.
When both new and total case and death counts grow quickly, the curves bend upward. As new cases and deaths slow, the curves level or bend down. In countries like Israel, which is seeing a second wave of case growth after an initial wave in April, the line forms a V-shape, as the initially bent curve spikes upwards again.
