CORRECTION (March 31, 2021, 3:47 p.m. ET): A previous version of the map on this article omitted South Sudan, which became a country in 2011. The map has been republished to include it.
CORRECTION (May 24, 2021 5:00 p.m. ET) A previous version of this article miscalculated the "last 7 days" of Covid-19 cases in each country. The cases shown were for the previous 2-8 days, not the previous 1-7 days.
