Spreadsheet of Covid19 numbers here

Notes on this spreadeheet.Each day comprises two lines; cases and deaths. The top line, cases, also gives the ratio of population to total cases. The bottom line, deaths, gives the total deaths and deaths as % of cases. For all lines, colour highlighting shows the evolution of cases as ratio population, and deaths as % cases. The pale green-highlighted line is the latest ratio of deaths to total population (i.r. population per single death)

The countries on this spreadsheet are now ordered on a rolling basis,

1) Absolute case numbers

2)Absolute death numbers

3) Prevalency ratio, population per case.

4) Crude Mortality rate, % of cases that have died. Current listing end July 2021

5) Population per death. Next listing due end August 2021

Data is ordered at all times from most to least severe.
