There’s a map that lets you track the Coronavirus spread in real time.
It’s an interactive map that offers crucial information such as confirmed cases by country and region, and the number of confirmed deaths.
The new coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, first appeared in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, after people showing signs of pneumonia were not being successfully treated with existing vaccines or treatments.
With nearly 4700 confirmed cases and over 100 deaths, it’s paramount to keep up with the latest developments regarding the spread of the new coronavirus. This map can help.
Built and regularly updated by the John Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, the map offers an online dashboard for tracking the worldwide spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
The map shows up-to-date statistics about deaths and confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV, across an interactive worldwide map.
Lauren Gardner, a civil engineering professor and CSSE’s co-director, and also the person behind the initiative says that “making the data available for download is critical for researchers.”
How To Use the Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Map
The coronavirus map, which can be found here, is pretty straightforward.
On the left sidebar, you can see the number of confirmed cases by country and region which as of this writing is 4,690.
On the right sidebar, you can see the total number of deaths and total recovered which as of this writing stand at 106 and 79, respectively.
In the center, the map is filled with red dots that pinpoint cities and regions where confirmed cases have been reported. If you click on one those red dots, you’ll be presented with information such as the last time it was updated, Province/State, Country/Region, Confirmed Cases, Deaths, and Recovered.
You can click and drag to center the map in other countries and regions, or click on the bookmark-like icon in the top right corner to switch region.
