Confirmed cases

+181 mill.

+3,8 mill. in Spain

New in the week

+2,6 mill.

31,042 in Spain

Confirmed deaths


80,829 in Spain

New in the week

* The above figures are current as of June 30, 2021

Check the evolution of the pandemic in the world, from January 2020 to the present. elDiario.es analyzes the data collected by the Johns Hopkins University to show in graphs and maps the numbers of infections and mortality in all the countries of the world.

1) The pandemic in the world

The following map shows the main variables to see the situation of the epidemic around the world: if the cases are increasing or decreasing, the incidence of cases per inhabitant in the last two weeks, the total number of cases and deaths with COVID-19 in each country and the incidence of the virus compared to its population. Click on the buttons at the top of the map to see each variable.

It should be borne in mind that only the cases that have been detected by the health authorities of each country since the beginning of the epidemic are shown. In other words, the figures are closely related to the ability to test the population of each Government.

In the case of Spain, the 47,080 cases confirmed by antibody test up to May 27, 2020 have been included in the cases confirmed by PCR.

2) Evolution by country, at a glance

The evolution of the pandemic has been different in each country and continent. To see what the trend has been like in some of the worst affected countries, this graph shows the daily incidence rate, daily new cases, and daily new deaths. Click the buttons on the top of the graph to see each variable.

This is how the case curve has risen and fell in the most affected countries

Evolution of daily cases and daily deaths per million inhabitants and the trend (up or down) of new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the week compared to the previous week in the countries with the highest number of infections detected

3) Contagions and deaths around the world

This is how the total number of new cases and new deaths in all the countries of the world has evolved, day by day, since the start of the pandemic. To avoid data peaks (delays in notifications, series correction, etc.) and to better see the evolution, the weekly average is also shown. Click on the top buttons to see each variable.

4) The evolution of the virus on each continent

A year after the start of the pandemic, Europe flattened its contagion curve while Asia suffered its worst moment. How has the evolution of COVID-19 been in each region of the world? The following graph shows the evolution of the new cases detected in the main regions of the world. The average of the last 7 days is shown to better visualize the spread trend of the virus on each continent.

5) The curves, by country

The pace of pandemic expansion is different in each country. How has the curve evolved in the most affected countries? To verify this, we have calculated the evolution of the number of new cases and new daily deaths confirmed by the health authorities of each country, and we have taken the average for the last week.

6) The epidemic in Spain, in context

How is the situation in Spain compared to the rest of the countries? The following curves show the evolution of daily cases and deaths per 100,000 inhabitants.

It should be noted that the curves show reported cases. That is, at what time did the country report these infections or deaths. For that reason, some countries present anomalous peaks in some dates that added many deaths or cases of stroke.

7) Those most vulnerable to COVID-19

The COVID-19 disease mainly affects older people. The data for Spain, Italy, the United States, South Korea, China and other European and American countries repeat the same trend. The death rate skyrockets among those over 70 years of age.

In the case of Italy and South Korea and the rest of the countries, they refer to the most up-to-date government reports and in the case of China, to a report that analyzed more than 40,000 diagnosed cases of the virus in the country. Those for Spain refer to a disaggregated sample from the Ministry of Health.

8) All data, country by country

In the following table you can consult the data for each country, in detail. It shows: the new cases reported in the last week and in the previous week, and what is the trend (if they rise, fall or remain stable), as well as the incidence rate per million inhabitants in 14 days. In addition, we have added data on total mortality and in relation to the population of each country.

9) The coronavirus in Spain, by autonomous community

Situation of the pandemic in Spain in each autonomous community, according to the latest data published by the Ministry of Health. Click on each region to see the number of cases and total deaths and per 100,000 inhabitants.

10) Cases per inhabitant in the autonomous communities

In order to know the degree of penetration of the virus compared to the number of inhabitants, we have calculated the rate of confirmed cases and the number of deaths in each autonomous region per 100,000 inhabitants. Confirmed cases refer to those identified by PCR test or antibody test – in the latter case only those carried out after May 11 with compatible symptoms are counted.
