⚠️ Until 4/8 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.

Data source: Ministry of Public Health (published by National Emergency System).


With these graphs updated daily with public official information I show you:

  • Daily active cases: Active cases per day. 👉 This is the curve we have to flatten. The active cases are the people that currently have the virus, calculated as the total cases minus the recovered and deaths.
  • Cumulative cases, recovered and deaths: On each day, the total sum of confirmed cases, recovered and deaths up to that day.
  • Total Cases: Comparison of the total cases registered so far: percentage of active cases, recovered and deaths.
  • Daily tests: Number of tests carried out each day.
  • Daily new cases: Number of new cases in each day
  • Daily new active cases: In each day, number of new active cases (people with the virus) compared to the previous day. A negative number means that the number of people with the virus decreased that day.
  • Daily healthcare workers cases: Number of new cases in each day and how many of them correspond to healthcare workers.
  • Percentage of healthcare workers cases: Of the new cases of each day, what percentage correspond to healthcare workers on that day.
  • Hospitalizations: Number of people in intermediate care and intensive care each day.
  • Hospitalizations percentage of active cases: Percentage of hospitalizations of active cases on each day.
  • Deaths by age: Deaths by age ranges.
  • Deaths by sex: Total deaths by sex.

If you don’t want to appear in these charts, stay home. If you don’t want your loved ones to appear in these charts, stay home. If you don’t want innocent people to appear in these charts, 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.

Why stay home?

  • 😷 We decrease the probability of infecting ourselves and infecting others.
  • ⚠️ About 60% of people with coronavirus show mild or no symptoms. [source]
  • 🏥 We help to avoid overloading the health system and therefore to save lives.
  • 🤩 Celebrities want you to stay home

New! I invite you to try my interactive coronavirus simulation where you can visually see the impact of social distancing.
