Coronavirus map: Track COVID-19′s spread in real-time

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.

UPDATE 12:36 p.m.: The Johns Hopkins University map no longer contains county level data. A statement from the university said that in order to maintain timeliness and accuracy of the data in light of the “increasing rate of cases being reported domestically in the U.S. and worldwide,” the map had to focus on reporting only at the state and country level.

A different map, this one maintained by the University of Washington, is still reporting county-level data, however that map is not updated as frequently as the Johns Hopkins University map.

“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.

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.
