About the data

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

June 16, 2020: India announced a backlog of deaths.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
