Coronavirus Growth in Western Countries: November 10 Update

Before we get to our regular set of COVID-19 charts, here’s a look at worldwide deaths:

I don’t know how accurate the worldwide data is, but it’s an understatement if anything. We are already well above the April peak and still skyrocketing upward.
