Here’s the latest coronavirus data from Worldometers.info as of 11:30 am on March 23.

The first section of the table below shows the final results for the United States for March 20 through March 22 and through 11:30 am for March 23.  The second section of the table lists the 10 countries with the most confirmed cases reported as of March 22.

  • The U.S. mortality rate through March 22 was 1.25%.
  • A little over 2% of confirmed cases in the U.S. are classified as serious or critical.
  • Confirmed cases reported through this morning account for 12-1,000th of a percent of the U.S. population.

Keep in mind, this data is just based on confirmed cases to date; expanded testing will identify more cases and the rates on critical cases and mortality could rise.

Italy has the highest mortality rate so far – 9.26% – but an article in The Telegraph from the United Kingdom suggests the rate may be driven by other factors.  In addition to Italy having a much older population with more underlying health conditions.  The article also says Italy has a high rate of smoking and pollution, and the majority of deaths have been in the northern region Lombardy region, which is notorious for poor air quality.

The way Italy records deaths may also be a factor.  The Telegraph quotes Professor Walter Ricciardi, scientific adviser to Italy’s minister of health, who says, “The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus.

“On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12% of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88% of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three,” he says.
