Notable deaths from Covid-19[edit source | edit]

While it's entirely fitting that a page called 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic deaths/WHO situation reports would have stats about deaths, I wonder whether there's any call for a 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic notable deaths page, which would list the passing of people of interest.
I notice that there's a more general list, Deaths in 2020, which includes Covid-19 deaths. Those and their counterparts on the forthcoming Deaths in 2021 page could be compiled into a specific Covid-19 page.
If such a page exists or comes into being, perhaps a link could be added to this page for people who come here looking for it. A disambiguation page for these stats and notable deaths is another possibility. 92.25.47.124 (talk) 08:24, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Happy to add a link to such a page if it is created, good idea to create it, please do! Anguswalker (talk) 11:41, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
There is already such a page, I have added a link to it Anguswalker (talk) 14:29, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Number of deaths[edit source | edit]

Is the number reported in the chart "how many people died on that specific day" ... or ... "the cumulative number of deaths, as of that specific day" ... ? I think it's the latter. But, it's unclear. The article should clarify. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 04:45, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

2019–20 coronavirus pandemic deathsCOVID-19 death reports – This article clearly represent the number of reported deaths caused by the coronavirus disease 2019. However, it should be noted that this requested move is not related to the requested move of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.

  • Move to Coronavirus pandemic deaths per my reasoning for the main article, "COVID-19" is an abbreviation and the term is often enough seen in the full that WP:NCA probably doesn't apply but this might not necessarily apply like 9/11 conspiracy theories where the abbreviation is common for that topic. Crouch, Swale (talk) 05:42, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose Per WP:AINTBROKE. No argument has been advanced that the current title is in any way wrong. Wikiafripedia is not a crystal ball that can tell the exact deaths, so the fact that there are only the "reported" deaths listed does not need to be spelled out in the title.ZXCVBNM (TALK) 13:29, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose The proposed title is confusing/ambiguous. To me, "COVID-19 death reports" sounds somewhat like reports of individual deaths, rather than of numbers of them. But the current title isn't ideal either - it isn't clear from the title how it differs in scope from List of deaths due to coronavirus disease 2019. So while I'm sure there's a better title for this article, this isn't it. — Smjg (talk) 16:49, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose "reports" also doesn't seem right to be, and per WP:AINTBROKE. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 01:08, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Oppose not really needed that way. Starzoner (talk) 01:30, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
  • Comment – I have changed the proposed title. --Soumyabrata stay at home 🏠 wash your hands 👋 to protect from COVID-19 😷 09:09, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
    • This proposal is to move to the title "COVID-19 death reports". People have already responded on the basis of this title. If you'd like to propose moving it to a different title, please start a new discussion. — Smjg (talk) 09:30, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

DRAFTs[edit source | edit]

FYI, there exists Draft:List of Medical Professionals Who Died During the COVID-19 Pandemic and Draft:Covid-19 and Doctors Dying in Clinical Service ; which you (editors) may wish to merge or just redirect to this article or the other one List of deaths due to coronavirus disease 2019 -- 65.94.170.207 (talk) 16:10, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

First reported case does not need to be duplicated in all tables. Less work, and narrower tables[edit source | edit]

Column for "first reported case" can be removed from all the tables. It can go in a single table. This allows it to be updated more easily. Is someone updating that column in every table now? That is a ridiculous amount of duplication and work.

Removing it from all the monthly tables would make the tables narrower too. That means they would be viewable in more screen widths. --Timeshifter (talk) 05:46, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

"First reported cases" table is at COVID-19 pandemic cases. It is not necessary to duplicate it here[edit source | edit]

There is now a separate table for "First reported cases" at COVID-19 pandemic cases.

So the columns are no longer necessary here. A link can be provided to that article. --Timeshifter (talk) 09:18, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Errors in data[edit source | edit]

There appears to be an obvious error in the data for the USA on May 3 / May 4, since the total number of deaths go up and then back down. I couldn't find a source for these specific numbers. Can someone check the validity of those numbers and correct them as needed. Truthanado (talk) 18:28, 9 May 2020 (UTC)
