  • COVID-19 cases worldwide as of December 2, 2020, by country

    Dec 2, 2020 | Diseases

    As of November 16, 2020, the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) had been confirmed in over 210 countries or territories. The virus had infected almost 55 million people worldwide, and the number of deaths had totaled reached around 1.3 million. The most severely affected countries include the U.S., Brazil, and Mexico. COVID-19: background information COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that had not previously been identified in humans. The first case was detected in the Hubei province of China at the end of December 2019. The virus is highly transmissible, and thousands of new cases are being reported around the world each day. Coughing and sneezing are believed to be the most common forms of transmission, which is similar to the outbreak of the SARS coronavirus that began in 2002 and was thought to have spread via cough and sneeze droplets expelled into the air by infected persons. Naming the coronavirus disease Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that can be transmitted between animals and people, causing illnesses that may range from the common cold to more severe respiratory syndromes. In February 2020, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses and the World Health Organization announced official names for both the virus and the disease it causes: SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, respectively. The name of the disease is derived from the words corona, virus, and disease, while the number 19 represents the year that it emerged.

  • COVID-19 deaths worldwide per million population as of December 2, 2020, by country

    Dec 2, 2020 | Diseases

    Based on a comparison of coronavirus deaths in 192 countries relative to their population, Belgium had the most losses to COVID-19 up until November 26, 2020. As of the same date, the virus had infected over 60.4 million people worldwide, and the number of deaths had totaled more than 1.4 million. Note, however, that COVID-19 test rates can vary per country. Additionally, big differences show up between countries when combining the number of deaths against confirmed COVID-19 cases. The difficulties of death figures This table aims to provide a complete picture on the topic, but it very much relies on data that has become more difficult to compare. As the coronavirus pandemic developed across the world, countries already used different methods to count fatalities, and they sometimes changed them during the course of the pandemic. On April 16, for example, the Chinese city of Wuhan added a 50 percent increase in their death figures to account for community deaths. These deaths occurred outside of hospitals and went unaccounted for so far. The state of New York did something similar two days before, revising their figures with 3,700 new deaths as they started to include “assumed” coronavirus victims. The United Kingdom started counting deaths in care homes and private households on April 29, adjusting their number with about 5,000 new deaths (which were corrected lowered again by the same amount on August 18). This makes an already difficult comparison even more difficult. Belgium, for example, counts suspected coronavirus deaths in their figures, whereas other countries have not done that (yet). This means two things. First, it could have a big impact on both current as well as future figures. On April 16 already, UK health experts stated that if their numbers were corrected for community deaths like in Wuhan, the UK number would change from 205 to “above 300”. This is exactly what happened two weeks later. Second, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly which countries already have “revised” numbers (like Belgium, Wuhan or New York) and which ones do not. One work-around could be to look at (freely accessible) timelines that track the reported daily increase of deaths in certain countries. Several of these are available on our platform, such as for Belgium, Italy and Sweden. A sudden large increase might be an indicator that the domestic sources changed their methodology. Where are these numbers coming from? The numbers shown here were collected by Johns Hopkins University, a source that manually checks the data with domestic health authorities. For the majority of countries, this is from national authorities. In some cases, like China, the United States, Canada or Australia, city reports or other various state authorities were consulted. In this statistic, these separately reported numbers were put together. For more information or other freely accessible content, please visit our dedicated Facts and Figures page.

  • Christmas tree emission comparison: real vs fake trees

    Dec 8, 2018 | Emissions

    Whether a fake Christmas tree or a real Christmas tree is better for the environment, at least in terms of the emissions created, is a question that is often asked. Perhaps of surprise to some people, real Christmas trees create much less emissions than artificial/fake Christmas trees, which are often made from the plastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC). A fake Christmas tree that is 6.5 feet tall creates the equivalent of approximately 40 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions. This is mainly due to the fact that fake Christmas trees are made with plastic, which is produced from crude oil. Meanwhile, a real Christmas tree of the same size creates approximately 16 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions if it has been disposed of in a landfill (and therefore decomposes). If the real tree is burned after its use, then its disposal results in less than four kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, the most environmentally friendly way of all to dispose of a natural Christmas tree is through chipping/shredding followed by being used as mulch, or even through being kept growing in a pot. As long as real Christmas trees are grown in a tree farm rather than harvested without being replanted, deforestation need not be a consequence of natural Christmas tree consumption.

  • Average spending on Christmas gifts in the U.S. 1999-2020

    Nov 25, 2020 | Shopping Behavior

    In 2020, consumers in the United States expected to spend approximately 850 U.S. dollars on average on Christmas gifts. This is roughly the same amount that Americans were thinking of spending in the previous year. Holiday shopping The Christmas season or so called holiday season is the strongest sales period of the year for retailers: this period includes days, such as Thanksgiving, and Black Friday, and an increasing amount of Americans shop online during this busy time. With spending via desktop reaching over four and a half billion U.S. dollars, the most popular day for online shopping was Cyber Monday in 2019. Gift cards and vouchers Christmas is a public holiday in the United States and is celebrated on December 25th each year. It’s known as a big economic stimulus for many people to purchase Christmas gifts for their beloved family and friends. After Christmas and New Year’s Eve, retail sales usually peak again in January as many people redeem their received Christmas gift cards and vouchers. In 2020, roughly 50 percent of U.S. consumers plan to buy gift cards or gift certificates. It is a popular gifting option that was also commonly purchased online last year.

  • State unemployment rate in the U.S. October 2020

    Nov 20, 2020 | Employment

    This table ranks the 50 states of the United States and the District of Columbia by their unemployment rate. In October 2020, about 14.3 percent of Hawaii's population was unemployed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Unemployment in the U.S. A person is considered unemployed if they have no job and are currently looking for a job and available to work. The unemployment rate in the United States varies across states. Nation-wide unemployment was 6.9 percent as of October 2020. Unemployment can be affected by various factors including economic conditions and global competition. During economic prosperity, unemployment rates generally decrease and during times of recession, rates increase. Many Americans believe that job creation should be one of the most important priorities set by the government. Since 1990, the country’s unemployment rate reached a low of 3.7 percent in 2019, and a high in 2010 at 9.6 percent. It has been argued that the definition of unemployment is too narrow and does not include some groups of people, such as the “underemployed” and the “hidden unemployed.”

  • Daily impact of COVID-19 on restaurant dining in Germany Feb-Nov 2020

    Dec 2, 2020 | Food & Drink Services

    After closing for two months due to the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants in parts of Germany began to re-open in May 2020. The number of seated diners was much lower in the initial weeks compared to last year, but the figures, based on an analysis of online, phone and walk-in reservations, generally rose in the following months. As of November 2, a new partial lockdown started in Germany, causing restaurants to close for visitors until December. On November 29, 2020, there were around 97.43 percent less seated diners in German restaurants than on the same day a year ago. Measures to reduce the spread of the the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Germany had a major impact on the local restaurant industry. On March 16, 2020 the federal government together with federal states, announced new regulations that required restaurants to close daily by 6pm and to implement distancing between tables or to limit guests. On the day of the implementation, the year-over-year decline in seated diners in restaurants on the online reservation service OpenTable went down by a staggering 90 percent. Only a short time later most states had ordered all restaurants to close to guests, but still allowed them sell to customers if they ordered as a take out or delivery.

  • Number of COVID-19 cases in selected APAC countries as of November 22, 2020

    Nov 24, 2020 | Diseases

    The outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China saw infection cases spread throughout the Asia Pacific region. By November 22, 2020 India had faced over nine million coronavirus cases. Indonesia followed behind India as having had the second highest number of coronavirus cases in Asia Pacific, with over 493.3 thousand cases. At the beginning of the outbreak, people in South Korea had been optimistic and predicted that the number of cases would start to stabilize. What is SARS CoV 2? Novel coronavirus, officially known as SARS CoV 2, is a disease which causes respiratory problems which can lead to difficulty breathing and pneumonia. The illness is similar to that of SARS which spread throughout China in 2003. After the outbreak of the coronavirus, various businesses and shops closed to prevent further spread of the disease. Impacts from flight cancellations and travel plans were felt across the Asia Pacific region. Many people expressed feelings of anxiety as to how the virus would progress. Impact throughout Asia Pacific By the end of January 2020, it was announced that the coronavirus outbreak was in fact a public health emergency. The following March, it was officially declared a global pandemic. China and South Korea were the main countries in the Asia Pacific region which initially saw the rapid spread of COVID-19 among its citizens. The high number of cases experienced in these countries was likely due to community spreading, in which the infection spread through a specific area. However, by October China nor South Korea were in the leading five Asia Pacific countries that had suffered the highest number of coronavirus cases. Throughout 2020, strong impacts were felt in various Asia Pacific economies, due to the slowdown of many economies across the Asia Pacific region.
