Coronavirus Growth in Western Countries: May 26 Update

Smart, Fearless Journalism

Crime and Justice

Monika Bauerlein, CEO
Dear reader,
This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I’ve been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In “News Is Just Like Waste Management,” I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you’re able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.

In “News Is Just Like Waste Management,” Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein explains how the coronavirus crisis is impacting our journalism and why we need to raise $400,000 to help cover all of the reporting we plan to do. If you’re able to, please support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism today.

Here’s the coronavirus death toll through May 26. The US continues to decline substantially. We’ve averaged only 600 deaths daily over the past three days. Elsewhere, the message seems to be that after you’ve made good progress for about six weeks, it gets harder to keep making steady progress. I’m not quite sure why that is.
The raw data from Johns Hopkins is here. The Public Health Agency of Sweden is here.
