The daily COVID chronicle - June 5, 2020

Just for fun, here's a weekly graph of the numbers of cases that I have logged since I began this series. The blue bars represent total cases, and the red line represents new cases. The other lines are fitted curves from the LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet.

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 6,664,908 with 2,892,047 recoveries, 391,686 fatalities, and 1,872,660 cases in the United States (US). In the US, this represents 21,140 new cases which is an increase of 8,787 over yesterday.

Of the US cases, the site reports 485,002 recoveries, 108,211 fatalities, and 18,680,529 total tests administered. My own state, Pennsylvania, is reporting 78,335 total cases, 51,019 recoveries, 5,832 fatalities, and 491,502 total tests.
