  • COVID-19 cases worldwide as of January 20, 2021, by country

    Jan 20, 2021 | 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.

  • Age of US Presidents when first taking office 1789-2021

    Jan 20, 2021 | Historical Data

    Since 1789, 45 different men have served as President of the United States (Grover Cleveland served as the 22nd and 24th president; therefore Joe Biden is officially the 46th president), and the average age of these men when taking office for the first time was approximately 56 years and 261 days. Generally speaking, Republican Party presidents have a fairly even split above and below the average age, whereas around two thirds of Democratic candidates have been younger than this average when assuming office. The first nine U.S. presidents were all older than 57 years old. Record holders The youngest presidents to take office were Theodore Roosevelt in 1901 (42 years and 322 days), who ascended following the assassination of William McKinley, and the youngest elected president was John F Kennedy in 1961 (43 years and 236 days). The oldest presidents to take office were Donald Trump in 2017 (70 years and 220 days), and Ronald Reagan in 1981 (69 years and 349 days); until the most recent election saw Joe Biden (78 years, 61 days) become the oldest man to ever become president, by a margin of almost eight years. Historically, there seems to be little correlation between age and electability, and the past five presidents have included the two oldest to ever take office, and two of the youngest. Leaders in other countries Across the world, there are elected leaders from a wide range of ages. 2020 saw the election of the two youngest sitting world leaders; with 34 year old Sanna Marin's election as the Prime Minister of Finland, and 33 year old Sebastian Kurz's re-election as the Chancellor of Austria (after having also served in this position at 31 years old). Several unelected current-leaders also, came in to power at an even earlier age than this; as North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, assumed office at the age of 28 (possibly 27), while the King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, ascended to the throne at the age of 26. In contrast to this, US presidents must be at least 35 years old upon their inauguration. While there are many current monarchs or heads of state in their 80s and 90s, very few of them were elected to office; the oldest elected state leaders in recent years were (now-retired) Mahathir bin Mohamad of Malaysia, who was two months shy of 93 when elected to office in 2018, and the current President of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, who was over 81 years old when first elected to power. The Queen of England will turn 95 in April this year, while Pope Francis will celebrate his 85th birthday in December.

Comparatively, Luxembourg and Switzerland have some of the world’s largest GDP per capita with 113,196 U.S. dollars and 83,717 U.S. dollars, respectively, as of 2019.

The country also ranges among the world's largest agricultural producers and consumers. It relies heavily on intensive agricultural practices and is the world's largest producer of pigs, chickens, and eggs. Livestock production has been heavily emphasized since the mid-1970s. China’s chemical industry has also seen growth with a heavy focus on fertilizers, plastics, and synthetic fibers. China's use of chemical fertilizers amounted to approximately 54 million metric tons in 2019. Industry and construction account for almost half of China's GDP. Some of the major industries include mining and ore processing, food processing, coal, machinery, textiles and apparel, and consumer products. Almost half of China's output is dedicated to investment purposes. However, as the country tends to support gross output, innovation, technological advancement, and even quality are often lacking.
