Interactive Web Site Tracks the Global Spread of the Coronavirus: Created and Supported by Johns Hopkins

Johns Hop­kins has cre­at­ed an inter­ac­tive web­site that tracks the spread of the coro­n­avirus around the globe. The site is updat­ed dai­ly, if not sev­er­al times per day. And it shows the num­ber of con­firmed coro­n­avirus cas­es around the globe (along with the pre­cise loca­tion on a map), the num­ber of peo­ple who have recov­ered from the virus, and the total num­ber who have per­ished. With the report today that Italy has seen coro­n­avirus spike from 3 cas­es, to 132 230, in a mat­ter of days, it does look like coro­n­avirus is tak­ing on a more glob­al dimen­sion. That’s all reflect­ed on the Johns Hop­kins site, whose data is drawn from the WHOCDCECDCNHC and DXY. You can read more about the inter­ac­tive web­site at The Lancet.

    Not pre­cise. The red dot on the UK would sug­gest all the cas­es are near Carlisle. Most of the UK cas­es are in the south of Eng­land and none are in the area of Carlisle.

    You usu­al­ly just put a dot some­where in the coun­try. Data rep­re­sents cas­es per coun­try, it is not relat­ed to the spe­cif­ic coun­tries loca­tion.
