Reuters is collecting daily COVID-19 infections and deaths data for 240 countries and territories around the world, updated regularly throughout each day.
Every country reports those figures a little differently and, inevitably, misses undiagnosed infections and deaths. With this project we are focusing on the trends within countries as they try to contain the virus’ spread, whether they are approaching or past peak infection rates, or if they are seeing a resurgence of infections or deaths.

So far, at least 194 countries have begun vaccinating people for the coronavirus and have administered at least 1,398,994,000 doses of the vaccine.
Gibraltar leads the world and has administered enough vaccine doses for 110% of its population, assuming every person needs two doses.
About this data
This vaccine rollout data is reported by the number of doses of coronavirus vaccines administered, not the number of people who have been vaccinated. Because most vaccines require two doses and many countries have different schedules to deliver the second dose, we don’t know with this data how many people have ultimately received both doses.

Who’s at the peak?
COVID-19 has hit some countries far harder than others, though differences in the way infections are counted locally make it impossible to make a perfect apples-to-apples comparison.
We want to know where infections are trending up or down relative to the size of the outbreak in each country. So in these charts we use a rolling 7-day average of the new infections countries report each day and compare where that average is now to where it was at its peak.
The percent of that peak a country currently reports gives us a better idea of how far it is from containing the spread of the virus relative to the worst days of its outbreak.
What you need to know
These charts emphasize the countries that are in the worst stage of their outbreaks, rather than the ones that are reporting the most infections. Keep in mind that the comparison will be affected if a country changes the way it reports or counts COVID-19 infections. Changing the count may mean the peak point of comparison would have been higher or lower if the country reported infections then the way it does now.

Of every 100 infections last reported around the world, more than 60 were reported from countries in Asia and the Middle East. The region is reporting a million new infections about every 2 days and has reported more than 45,804,000 since the pandemic began.
