Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Global Cases
On December 31, 2019 the World Health Organization (WHO) alerted about various cases of pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, a city located in the Hubei province in China. These cases of pneumonia are believed to have been caused by a previously unknown virus. A week later, on 7 January 2020, Chinese health and political authorities admitted that it was a new virus on 2019-nCoV.
What is 2019-nCoV?
2019-nCoV belongs to the coronavirus family. It causes respiratory infections in humans and animals. These infections can take the form of a cold, but can also lead to more severe illnesses. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) are among them.
Is there a cure?
Fatal cases have been recorded, but it is important to point out that there is a cure. In fact, there are far more cases of cures than deaths. To find out for sure, you can follow the evolution of the 2019-nCoV epidemic by using the map provided by John Hopkins University.
This map shows the total number of people infected with the virus worldwide. On the left you can see the number of cases per country, while on the right you can see the number of people who have recovered and those who have died from the virus. A graph allows you to compare these two data to observe their evolution over time.
How do I use the 2019-nCoV real-time epidemic map?
The Coronavirus real-time map is relatively simple to use, although it is only available in English. Click on the country of your choice in the left pane to view the map in the centre. You can also view the number of cases by city/province from the same column. Note that you have the possibility to change the backgrounds of the maps.
The map is regularly updated. The time of the last update is indicated at the bottom left.
