Coronavirus, the deadly virus that causes severe respiratory disorders leading to death originated in the Chinese province of Wuhan. The virus has caused a severe pandemic outbreak which is spreading to different parts of the world rapidly.
Until now, more than 89,000 cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed in different parts of the world including China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Italy, France, Iran among others. COVID-19 has claimed around 3000 lives worldwide.
It collects the data from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, and Dingxiangyuan, a social networking site for health care professionals to give the statistics about the number of confirmed cases, deaths, and recoveries from each and every country in the world.
“We built this dashboard because we think it is important for the public to have an understanding of the outbreak situation as it unfolds with transparent data sources,” CSSE’s director Lauren Gardner told Hub. “For the research community, this data will become more valuable as we continue to collect it over time,” she added.
You can have a look at the coronavirus dashboard here.
You can also download a Google Sheet that contains information on confirmed and suspected cases in more than 30 Chinese provinces as well as that in Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, Colombia, Brazil, Australia, Mexico, and the United States from the website.
The map is certainly turning out to be effective in keeping a track of the spread of COVID-19. This will help the common man keep an eye on the growing virus so that they can avoid traveling to places that fall in the coronavirus prone zones.
