Just for fun, here's an update to the graph with the US numbers that I've logged every day for this series. The numbers tailing away from the exponential trend lines could be a good sign, or it cold just indicate that expansion of testing has slowed.


As mentioned in previous posts, here is a visualization tool for mapping the cases of COVID-19 occurrences.

According to the site, this morning's worldwide number of reported cases was 1,033,478 with 218,864 recoveries, 54,369 deaths, 245,601 cases reported in the US.

Of the cases in the US, there have been 9,228 reported recoveries, 6,058 fatalities, and 7,345 cases in my own state, Pennsylvania - with 92 deaths.
