The Coronavirus Map

So far there have been 555 confirmed cases and 17 deaths from the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Most of the confirmed cases have occurred in China, however there have also been a handful of cases in Japan and one confirmed case in the United States.

In Wuhan, China the government has shut down public transport in order to help stop the spread of the virus. The Chinese New Year is this Saturday. Traditionally during the New Year there is a lot of travel and movement as people visit family for the festivities. People in Wuhan have been advised not to travel and the airport, train stations, bus, subway and ferry have all been closed.

The Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Global Cases interactive map shows where there have been confirmed cases of the Wuhan Coronavirus around the world. The map uses data from the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control and the National Health Committee of the People's Republic of China. It is updated daily.

You can view news about the Coronavirus outbreak from around the world on HealthMap. HealthMap uses data from a number of different news sources and health organizations to monitor global disease outbreaks. If you select the search option you can filter the map to only show global news about the Coronavirus. It is important to note that HealthMap does not map confirmed cases of diseases but news about diseases. It can therefore be useful for discovering what measures and advice your government is currently providing about any global outbreaks.
