Do you know any website(s) where I could check how many COVID-19 cases Italy had 10 days ago?

Let me explain: We are travelling to the Dominican Republic at the end of this month with transfer in Germany (Frankfurt). At the start of this week, my country (Slovakia) banned all flights to and from Italy.

So I would like to check how many cases were there in Italy about 10 days ago, to maybe predict the future cases in Germany (possibility that all flights to Germany will be banned too). At this moment, our travel agency doesn't want to cancel our trip, and neither do we, because we would lose 80% of our money.

    The data you are asking for are by far insufficient for the prediction you are trying to make. Nobody knows how this will develop, and whatever the Italy situation was 10 days ago has virtually no use for modelling what it might do in Germany in the next 10 days.

    @gerrit Yes maybe you are right, however I would like to check those data.

    And Indian government tightened its border control and cancelled visas even when count was low. So, its almost entirely unpredictable. Policy decisions can come quickly without warning. Mar 11 '20 at 3:21

    I'm an italian guy from red zone in Italy, don't underestimate the virus, don't wait your government measures, stay at home!

    Note that if your trip involved a flight from Slovakia to Frankfurt, it'll get cancelled anyway, because Slovakia just decided to close all airports for all traffic.

You can check it at Worldometers.info. There is plenty of info for each country in there.

    That worldometers.info site is a fount of useful information, and not just about coronavirus.

    @padd13ear It's nicely visualised, but is it true?

    @Traveller Sure, I don't doubt it corresponds to the data WHO collects from member states, however, I don't trust the data reported by member states. The UK government does not actually know how many people are carrying the virus without having symptoms.

    @gerrit Can you explain why this question is dangerous and should be deleted ?

Have a look at the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus dashboard

Coronavoris Dashboard

You can access their database directly if you wish to do your own modelling on the projection of the virus.

There are also daily situation reports documenting progress of effects of the disease in relevant countries.

The official WHO website is the best so far, it only shows clinically proven cases. However, it's a bit late sometimes.

  • Interesting that these figures (live, not from the screenshot) disagreed with the John Hopkins dashboard in the other answer.

    @Darren WHO is doing a very bad job with this pandemic. They seem to be deliberately underreporting and misinforming people.

    @jwenting Note that JHU is using additional data from "media reports" (From the footer: "Confirmed cases include presumptive positive cases."), while WHO is only sourcing clinically proven cases. With all the media craze going around, i'm not sure if it is fair to consider WHO underreporting. Comparing countries, the mayor differences seem to occur in Germany and the US, no idea why that would be though. Mar 11 '20 at 8:02
  • I was wondering why the site wasn't loading, turns it out takes a while. Server must be busy.

    @jwenting of course there's no possibility that the for-profit media are exploiting this event to maximize their profits from clickbait. That could never possibly happen, it must be a world government conspiracy.

I kinda like Mackuba.eu. It uses the data of the Johns Hopkins CSSE. And it creates nice graphs for every country.

Chart of COVID-19 cases in Italy from Mackuba.eu

Worldometer is a good source for

  • list of countries summary
    • with individual links to (at present) 9 countries
      • daily numbers and graphic results for different combinations
        • newly infected, recovered, deaths and comparisons
  • Daily list of new reports
    • with a link to the original source

A Coronavirus-Monitor (from the Berlin Newspaper Morgenpost)

  • based on Johns Hopkins University CSSE data
  • showing Map results for regional areas (where available)

Do you know any website(s) where I could check how many COVID-19 cases Italy had 10 days ago?

Goto Germany, Italy or the United States, scroll down to the graphs:

  • Total Coronavirus Cases in...
  • Daily New Cases in...
  • Active Cases in...
  • Total Coronavirus Deaths in...
  • Daily New Deaths in...
  • Newly Infected vs. Newly Recovered in...
  • Outcome of Cases (Recovery or Death) in...

Place your finger/mouse over the desired date:

  • Feb 21 (when the outbreak in Italy started)

2020-02-21: Germany 16 cases 2020-02-21: Italy 21 cases 2020-02-21: United States 35 cases

The main total Case Graphs page offers the same functionality.

Just adding the official graph of Protezione Civile on the same platform as John Hopkins one: http://opendatadpc.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/b0c68bce2cce478eaac82fe38d4138b1 Cases are broken down by region.

Data comes from official sources (Ministero della Salute). I recommend checking their official website too for official news (italian only).

    I hope they realise that "Incremento giornaliero degli attualmente positivi" (daily change in currently positive) is a very misleading metric to be looking at. Because this is new cases minus recoveries and deaths. They should be focusing on how many new cases there are if they want to gauge how fast the virus is spreading. If someone dies it will decrease the number ""Incremento giornaliero degli attualmente positivi" but it doesn't mean the virus is spreading slower.

I don’t know of a website publishing historic day-by-day data, but this one https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries includes a detailed historic commentary on the figures so you could probably work out what you are looking for based on the data as at today and tracking back through the commentary to the date you’re interested in.

However, I agree with @Gerrit - it is impossible to draw any meaningful conclusions at all from such an exercise. There are too many variables eg population tested, date when testing began in Germany and on what basis etc.

  • Thank you, I accepted the answer above as he was the first and you provided the same website. And thanks for the explanation.

  • @Calys Sheer speculation, but countries with a land border with Italy might be more likely to introduce a travel ban sooner than those without. So you could consider rerouting via an airport outside the worst-hit countries. But quantifying what ‘more likely’ might mean is of course impossible.
