Table 1 Regression tables predicting growth in (A) cases and (B) deaths. Day is mean-centered, and BCG policy variables are both contrast-coded.

Population is natural log-transformed, and all covariates are standardized. This analysis is based on 134 and 135 countries for cases and deaths, respectively. GDP, gross domestic product.
