And for those who wish to keep up with the coronavirus in nearly-real-time, there’s a map for that.
Developed by the Johns Hopkins Centre for Systems Science and Engineering, the interactive map is titled Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases, and offers a visual representation of all the world’s confirmed cases of the illness.
The dashboard is updated regularly with data from the World Health Organization and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, among other sources.
