New cases of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, are reported in the United States and around the world every day, but there’s a new way to stay updated constantly on where the disease has been reported.
The Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases map by The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University is tracking the spread of the disease in close to real time. It updates several times an hour, and includes a zoomable map pinpointing every confirmed case in the world to the county level.
“In response to this ongoing public health emergency, we developed an online dashboard … to visualize and track reported cases in real-time.,” says a blog about the project on the CSSE website.
The data is reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, city and state level authorities, the World Health Organization and other governmental health agencies around the world.
As of Sunday, March 8, New York had confirmed 105 cases of coronavirus, including two cases in Saratoga County in Upstate New York.
According to the John Hopkins map, there were 111,354 confirmed coronavirus cases around the world as of 8:53 a.m. ET on Monday, March 9. There have been 3,892 deaths and 62,375 recoveries so far.
Coronavirus’ spread has impacted stocks, oil prices, politics, travel, sports and more in New York and around the world. Scientists and researchers are busy working on a vaccine that they hope will hamper the spread of the potentially deadly disease.
