Coronavirus update: Global caseload surpasses 9 million, Brazilians flock to beach as WHO says country undercounting cases

This is a worldwide problem. Countries count differently. Some because they're poorly organised and have only a primitive health system. Others because they simply count differently.  The only real comparison between countries will be the excess deaths measure.  

In Europe, it is likely that the virus was circulating weeks before the Chinese notified WHO that they had a problem (31st Dec). Coronavirus was detected in sewage in Italy as early as mid-December and in blood samples as early as Dec 28th in France. It is quite possible that the seasonal flu spike in December in Italy was partly due to the coronavirus that we knew nothing about.

And a number of European countries are also recording new outbreaks. This is still the first wave. It'll be interesting to see how the Germans control this outbreak because they've been widely praised for their testing strategy. I note there are still difficulties in Australia.  Stay safe.

The spike is happening on the other side of the country.

Thankfully our Premier is doing an amazing job.

If I said that in the UK I'd be talking 100 miles or so.,(E to W) with a population of several  million. Do you still have travel between the states?
