Hello! Here is our daily look at coronavirus stats on a country-by-country basis, using data from the last 24 hours supplied by Worldometers. Today we will look at highlights from the most-affected countries including the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and the UK. We're also going to take a look at Russia and Brazil, where the situation is becoming very worrying. Scroll down for more. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The US: Plateau in new cases is still holding, which is good because it means that the disease is spreading at a roughly constant pace, not accelerating.
But there is no obvious decline setting in — which is worrying because 30,000 people per day are getting it. Unsurprisingly, deaths still occurring at a rate of roughly 2,000 people per day.
Spain: What a rollercoaster Spain is on. A good day yesterday, and let's hope those two recent days with high numbers remain outliers to the trend.
Deaths are declining but the active cases curve is not yet flat.
Italy: Looks like this is coming under control. The "active cases" curve is also getting flatter.
And deaths are down likewise.
France: More choppy data but an optimist might squint at this chart and say overall it's getting better.
More good news: The death toll is moderating.
Germany: Continued good news here on all fronts.
Deaths and new cases are down, and active cases are in decline too.
The UK: New cases are generally flat at about 5,000 per day but this isn't good news. While the highs are not breaking new records the lows are getting higher — which suggests Britain may not yet have reached the peak.
The "active cases" curve is still climbing at unbroken speed.
The most promising story coming out of the UK right now is the decline in hospital admissions.
Deaths have been over 750 for 5 straight days.
Russia: Very bad news. New cases and deaths are rising in steep, unbroken curves.
Active cases are almost heading toward vertical.
Russia is only at the beginning of the crisis.
Brazil: President Bolsonaro is a coronavirus denier and that makes these stats looks scary.
New cases and new deaths are still rising — nowhere near a plateau.
Here's the grid of most-affected countries.

Bad news in Spain, but the "plateau" in the US is holding. Progress in Italy, Germany, and UK is extremely slow. Belgium is a small country with a big problem. Scroll on for charts based on data from Worldometers. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The US: The "new cases" plateau is holding. That's good news. But it is not a decline - which you need to end a lockdown - and deaths are still going up. Spain: This is heartbreaking. Are we seeing a second wave? Let's hope not. Deaths remain elevated. "Active cases" ticked up too. Italy: Still fighting the good fight but the rate of decline has slowed. Deaths still elevated at 500+ per day. France: More messy data making it difficult to say what the real trend is. France obviously has a problem with uneven data collection. Germany: Entering "Italy" territory, in the sense that an initial promising decline in new cases has given way to a more feeble rate of decline. Deaths still growing. Active cases show the real story. The UK: Holding on to the plateau, but only just. Deaths are still over 700 per day. Active cases still rising. That's the real story here. Iran: The opposite of France, in the sense that this data is so smooth. It doesn't display the randomness you'd expect to see. Turkey: Let's hope that's a plateau not a pause before new growth. Deaths reflect an increase in active cases Belgium: Population 12 million. Yet is putting up "big country" numbers of cases, and the plateau is weak. New deaths are trending up. NYC: Excellent progress in the city, with hospital admissions in steep decline. Sweden: Took a relaxed approach, which has not included a full-scale lockdown, and is now paying the price. Singapore: In the early stages of the crisis. Japan: Also behind the curve. Here is the grid of most-affected countries. If you want more detail on your country, click here.

The data comes from Worldometers, which collates COVID-19 stats globally. See more stories on Business Insider's front page here. Starting with the most-affected, let's look at the US... The US: That looks like a "declining plateau" of new cases — a sign that (fingers crossed) America may be past the peak. New deaths still look alarming but deaths are a lagging indicator. Spain: Until the last two days, Spain was looking like a good news situation with a dramatic and consistent decline in new cases. That has been interrupted by a couple of bad days. The overall trend is still down, but it is not plain sailing. Italy: Like Spain, Italy was past the worst with new cases in continuous decline. Yesterday was a bad day, let's hope it's a blip and not a trend. New deaths are still running at a gruelling 500 per day, but remain in decline. Germany: A couple of bad days in Germany but the silver lining is that the new highs are lower than previous highs. Deaths are still trending up but as a lagging indicator. The "active cases" chart gives you a better idea of what's happening in Germany. Past the worst. The UK: New hope here — a plateau has returned in terms of new cases, after a couple of days in which it looked like new infections were accelerating. On the downside, the "active cases" chart shows you how much trouble Britain is still in — this upward curve has barely moderated. Not yet at the peak. Deaths are still trending up, persistently over 750+ daily. China: New data from China yesterday as the government there updated its death count to include patients whose passing went unrecorded in the confusion of the crisis. Look at this grid showing cases and deaths for the worst affected countries and you can see the stark contrast between China and Germany's low death count and everyone else's. This chart showing the collapse of Chinese GDP in Q1 — from Pantheon Macroeconomics — shows just how much damage COVID-19 has done. Iran: Continued decline in new cases. No surprises here — unless you count the persistent smoothness of these stats. Most other countries have random blips and troughs in their data. Turkey: Possibly the most worrying country on the map right now — with continued growth of new infections ... ... and new deaths. Austria: New cases and deaths are also trending toward zero. This is what it looks like when you have done it right. And in Australia: Astonishing success here — only 21 new cases yesterday. Looks like the Aussies have dodged the bullet. New Zealand: A fifth straight day of new cases at 20 or under. Deaths look bad but they are a lagging indicator — and that peak is only four (4). Here is the grid of most-affected countries.
