One Week. Seven Days in March, 2020.

For those who might be interested, I thought it might be helpful to know how many confirmed cases have occurred, and confirmed deaths have occurred, in the past week in the United States. These numbers are from the World Health Organization (WHO) Coronavirus Disease Situation Reports, Reports numbers 59 through 65, for the period from March 19, 2020 through March 25, 2020. At the end I will provide the latest available numbers, from other reporting sources.

Report 59, 03/19/2020 -- 7,087 reported cases; 100 reported deaths;
Report 60, 03/20/2019 -- 10,442 reported cases; 150 reported deaths;
Report 61, 03/21/2020 -- 15,219 reported cases; 201 reported deaths;
Report 62, 03/22/2020 -- 15,219 reported cases; 201 reported deaths;
Report 63, 03/23/2020 -- 31,573 reported cases; 402 reported deaths;
Report 64, 03/24/2020 -- 42,164 reported cases; 471 reported deaths; and
Report 65, 03/25/2020 -- 51,914 reported cases; 673 reported deaths.

I do not know why the numbers are the same for Reports 61 and 62, but I must assume it is because there were no new reported cases on March 22, 2020. This would make sense because March 22 was a Sunday, and reports may only be made six days per week.

As of today, March 25, 2020, at 8:00 PM EDT, the total number of reported cases in the United States has climbed from 51,914 cases in Report 65, to a total of 68,572 known cases. Reported deaths have climbed from 673 in Report 65 to a total of 928.

From March 19, 2020 through this evening, reported cases have increased from 7,087 to 68,572. Reported deaths have climbed from 100 on March 19, 2020 to 928 as of this evening.
