Coronavirus Infection Maps: Tracking cases around the world in real-time
As scientists pin down the origin, governments enact prevention measures and labs look for a cure, news about the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus often comes down to two questions: Where and how many people are infected?
Across our search, we’ve found two impressive, and real-time updated, interactive maps that list the number of cases, the geographic location of where these cases occurred and the current count and treatment update per country with such cases.
What is Coronavirus?
On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of an outbreak of “pneumonia of unknown cause” detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China – the seventh-largest city in China with 11 million residents. As of February 10, there are over 1,000 cases of 2019-nCoV confirmed globally, including cases in at least 20 regions in China and 26 countries around the globe. The first reported infected individuals, some of whom showed symptoms as early as December 8, were discovered to be among stallholders from the Wuhan South China Seafood Market. Subsequently, the wet market was closed on Jan 1. The virus causing the outbreak was quickly determined to be a novel coronavirus.
