Statistics on the 2019-2020 novel coronavirus outbreak

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 17 February 2020

Introduction: Data presented here are drawn primarily from the extensive information at the Johns Hopkins CSSE Coronavirus 2019-nCoV dashboard supplemented by data from World Health Organization situation reports and news reports. Some figures for 15-19 Jan 2020 amd 10-15 Feb 2020 are uncertain due to inconsistencies between these sources.

Statistics generally cover officially reported confirmed cases, though on 14 Feb 2020 PR China began including unconfirmed cases in data for Hubei province only. Reported case numbers unreport actual cases due to challenges in accurately detecting infections, overwhelming of health care services in Hubei, PR China, and apparent underreporting by Chinese authorities.

The first 2019 novel coronavirus cases were identified in Dec 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei, PR China. Most of these early cases were linked to a seafood market in that city by the end of the month. Subsequent research indicated that the first symptomatic case developed on 1 Dec with the first hospital admission on 16 Dec.
