Updated : 10/17/2021

⚠️ 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, 07/31/2021, 08/23/2021 and 10/14/2021 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.

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

  • Harvard Index: Risk level according to the average of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 7 days.
  • Vaccination total: Total of administered vaccines, discriminated by vaccine type.
  • Daily vaccination: Number of administered vaccines per day, discriminated by vaccine type.
  • Total dose: Total first and second dose per day
  • 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. New tests reported out of date are not considered due to lack of information.
  • Positivity Rate: On each day, percentage of positive tests done that day. For this calculation, it is assumed that the total of positive tests corresponds to the number of new cases that day due to lack of information. New cases and tests reported out of date are not considered due to lack of information.
  • Daily new cases: Number of new cases in each day. Includes cases reported after the MSP report.
  • 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 that correspond to healthcare workers. New cases reported out of date are not considered due to lack of information.
  • Percentage of healthcare workers cases: Of the new cases of each day, what percentage correspond to healthcare workers on that day. New cases reported out of date are not considered due to lack of information.
  • 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.
  • Total deaths by age: Total deaths by age ranges.
  • Daily deaths: Deaths per day.

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.

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.
