People looking to stay abreast of the spread of the coronavirus can now monitor a Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases map, created by The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.
The dashboard reports cases at city level in the United States, Australia and Canada, and at the country level elsewhere. It’s also tracking at the province level in China.
“In response to this ongoing public health emergency, we developed an interactive web-based dashboard (static snapshot shown above) hosted by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, to visualize and track reported cases in real-time,” Lauren Gardner writes in a jhu.edu blog post. “The dashboard, first shared publicly on January 22, illustrates the location and number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, deaths and recoveries for all affected countries. It was developed to provide researchers, public health authorities and the general public with a user-friendly tool to track the outbreak as it unfolds. Further, all the data collected and displayed is made freely available, initially as google sheets, now in a GitHub repository, along with the feature layers of the dashboard, which are now included in the ESRI Living Atlas.”
