Canada source of data:


Total worldwide confirmed cases now exceeds 1,000,000 and 50,000 deaths.  It took 67 days to reach the first 100,000, 11 days for the next 100,000, 4 days for the third 100,000, ~2 days for the fourth 100,000, less than 2 days for every 100,000 since. The blip in the global graph around March 17/18, 2020 is because the WHO changed their daily reporting time so numbers were lower for the shorter day.  Blip on March 22, 2020 from USA not reporting their new cases to WHO.
