current international tracking of covid-19

A country is not testing adequately when it is finding a case for every few tests they perform. Here it is likely that the true number of new cases is much higher than the number of cases that were confirmed by tests. When the positive rate of tests is high the line is shown in shades of red.

Blue lines mean that a country does many tests for each case it finds; the testing effort in these countries is adequate.

The graph below shows the total number of COVID-19 cases per million people and the doubling time of cases. A longer doubling time indicates a lower rate of transmission.


The doubling time is less dependent on testing capacity as long as the capacity does not change over time—which it often does. We would consider a country with few confirmed cases and a long doubling time to be successfully containing the outbreak, although low testing capacity could still be a factor.


In many cases a long doubling time may suggest that containment measures are starting to take effect. On the other hand, few cases and a short doubling time may suggest that the outbreak is spreading quickly, and the number of cases is set to increase.

In summary: ​Movement towards the right side of the graph suggests a slower spread of the virus.  Movement towards the left side of the graph suggests a faster spread of the virus.
