We took a look at the impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic on African countries using data from Johns Hopkins University. The chart below shows trendlines for confirmed cases, active cases, recoveries, and deaths by the number of days since the first confirmed case.

Most of the countries are grayed out. You can add a country to get it colored, you can remove any of the colored countries, and you can choose to see only selected countries as well.

We also have a table of the data below. You can use the table to filter, sort, and explore the data further. Send us feedback if you have some ideas of how we can improve this to answer some questions you may have.

Note: We will be updating this data daily based on new data from Johns Hopkins University. Currently, we update this data once at the end of the day.
