⚠️ Until 04/08/2020 the number of cases (people with the virus) was not reported, but the number of positive tests. There are people with the virus that were tested positive more than once. Therefore until 4/8, cases (people with the virus) are assumed as the positive tests due to lack of information.
⚠️ On 02/22/2021 the MSP through the SINAE reported an incorrect death but did not indicate which one. On the other hand, on 03/25/2021 it reported 13 deaths, but only listed 12. Furthermore, on 04/09/2021 it reported 36 deaths from the past, but did not list them. On 04/10/2021 an incorrect death was removed. On 04/13/2021, one more deceased was listed (or one less was counted). On 04/18/2021 listed two less deceased. On 04/26/2021, 04/27/2021 and 05/02/2021 an incorrect deceased was listed each day (it is not known which one). On 05/08/2021 an incorrect death was removed. On 05/23/2021 an incorrect deceased was listed. On 01/06/2021 and 03/06/2021 two incorrect deaths were removed each day. An extra death was listed on 06/10/2021. An incorrect death was removed on 06/11/2021. Two incorrect deaths were removed on 06/14/2021. On 06/23/2021, 06/30/2021 and 07/01/2021 an incorrect death was removed each day. On 07/06/2021 and 07/07/2021, one more deceased was listed (or one less was counted). On 07/19/2021, 07/30/2021 and 07/31/2021 an incorrect death was removed each day. For these reasons, the death chart "Deaths by age " does not add up the total number of deaths.
On 04/09/2021, the MSP published a report updating the data from 03/01/2021 to 04/08/2021, which shows inconsistencies with the rest of the known data. For this reason, the historical data on this site is only based on the original daily reports until the differences are clarified. This means that almost all the graphs that use historical data are not correct in the indicated period due to lack of information.
Data source: Ministry of Public Health (published by National Emergency System), Vacunación por Covid-19 provided by Ministry of Public Health under Licencia de Datos Abiertos – Uruguay, ICU (adults) bed occupancy viewer.
With these graphs updated daily with public official information I show you:
If you can, stay home.
👉 Stay home when possible. Obviously some of us have to go out to work because we cannot do it remotely and all of us at some point need to go out, due to a need of force majeure. Everything else can wait.
If you have to go out, keep 2 meters (~6.5 feet) away from other people and use a face mask to protect yourself and others. You don’t need to wear special face masks reserved for highly exposed people like healthcare workers. A strong, washable homemade fabric face mask is enough to cover your entire nose and mouth. Avoid touching your face without washing your hands first. When you return home, wash your hands and disinfect everything you bring home and what you have touched before washing your hands.
We are at war against an invisible enemy. The only way to defeat it is by working together. Take care of yourself and others by informing yourself and following the official guidelines (in Uruguay): Coronavirus National Plan.
I invite you to try my interactive coronavirus simulation where you can visually see the impact of social distancing.
First of all, it is super important that you follow the recommendations of the authorities and that you stay home as much as possible.
Download Coronavirus UY (oficial MSP app, link on the bottom of the page) and activate the exposure alerts if your device is compatible.
