Some countries are reporting more new coronavirus infections compared with the previous two weeks. Global data trends show that the pandemic isn't over yet. DW sums up the current situation in three charts.
These charts and this article are updated every Friday between 1100 and 1300 UTC. Last updated: November 19, 2021.

What's the current global trend?
The goal for all countries is to make it to the blue section of the chart and stay there. Countries and territories in this section have reported no new cases for four weeks in a row.

Currently, that is the case for four out of 188 countries and territories.

Please note: The number of newly reported cases highly depends on a country's ability to conduct tests and its strategy for administering tests. Additionally, some countries have been criticized for not accurately reporting case numbers.

How has the Covid-19 trend evolved over the past weeks?
The situation did not change significantly: 72 countries have reported more cases in the past two weeks compared with the previous 14 days.
