Epidemiological curves

These histograms are based on the available information at the time of publication, originating from several sources. Data completeness depends on the availability of information from the affected areas. All data should be interpreted with caution as the outbreak is evolving rapidly. In addition, due to the unavailability of date-of-onset data, likely testing of retrospective specimens and currently expanding introduction of the specific laboratory test for SARS-CoV-2, this figure might not be reflective of the evolution of the epidemic in China
