I could go through the back copies of WHO news and compile a list, but does any one have handy a list of cases and deaths for each country?

Also do you know how it is officially handled in the country statistics if a patient is airlifted from one country to another (eg from UAE to Germany, or Saudi Arabia to UK)?  If a patient dies in another country from where he (in most cases it is a he) fell ill is the death attributed to the first country or the country he died in?     I realise that this gets into the realm of politics, but WHO seems to be playing the political card and it would be good to know just what they are doing so one can understand the reports better.

Thanks for your help.

I went back through the WHO press releases:-

A case flown say from UAE to Germany counts as a case in Germany.  I suppose this helps show the spread, but it also helps limit the numbers from where people got sick (ie lower numbers in the Middle East).

One death was not reported between 12th and 14th May, but I assume that it was in Saudi Arabia.

From this I calculate

country      cases       deaths
France            2               0
Germany         1              1
Jordan            2               2
Qatar              2              0
Saudi Arabia 32            17
Tunisia            2              0
UK                   3              2

Total             44            22

In addition there is the index case in Tunisia which is only 'probable' and 11 'probable' cases in Jordan forming a cluster of 13 with 2 deaths.
