COVID-19 stats: for those interested, here is my full Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that I’ve been compiling and tracking (at 4:00pm each day since January 13, 2020) of COVID-19 historical data, supplied by Chinese Government National Health Commission of both daily domestic China and globally reported infection and death toll over the past 18 weeks. It’s not only useful for seeing dates of reported infections and deaths, but also for observing all important trend lines.
For the statisticians and historians (and the silly conspiracy nutters), it may be of interest.

All data supplied daily by Chinese Government National Health Commission
This may be made even more useful when read in conjunction with my timeline of major events from within China since December.

COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with symptoms have at least 1 of these. Treat it seriously.
About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others. This is why everyone is advised to get tested regularly.
