Coronavirus Growth in Western Countries: June 12 Update

Here’s the coronavirus death toll through June 12. The “reopening” began in the United States around mid-May and seemed like it was fully in gear by the end of the month. If we assume a 2-3 week lag between loosening restrictions and starting to see the death toll pick up, we should start to see deaths increasing next week or the week after at the latest. If that doesn’t happen, it means . . . something. In any case, we are about to enter a very important couple of weeks.

The raw data from Johns Hopkins is here. The Public Health Agency of Sweden is here.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
