What do I mean with processed? We have cases. We deduct those who are recovered and died. What’s left is called active cases. The process of deducting the cases into active cases is called the ‘processing of the pandemic’. The end result must be no active cases anymore, because everyone is or recovered or has died. What it means for individual countries? It means that each country has an end date, the complete (or processed) rate and a percentage increase/decrease per day. How higher the last percentage, how faster the pandemic is gone.
It’s foolish of a country not to report numbers about mortality and recovery as new infections. Especially when they give the official reason that don’t don’t want to monitor and register the recovered people. A reason might be that it’s too hard to register and to maintain the numbers of those recovered, because the infected people are not held in one central location. Many of them are at home, others in different hospitals or the so called virus-hotels and sometimes special camps and military bases.
And there is only one thing to make things complicated. That percentage of the completeness or processed will/can change per day, depending on the number of new infections, the number of people recovered and the number of people who have died.
But as it is, currently I generated the following list (tomorrow it might change):
per day (%)
Worldwide, 39% is processed. In Europe, 47% is processed, North America has a 23%, Asia 56%, South America 40%, Africa 37% and Oceania 87%.
Another way to compare countries and see how they are performing during the pandemic is the rank list.
