By now, you've likely come across a stockpile of online maps and charts showing the alarmingly rapid spread of the coronavirus disease — known as COVID-19 — since it was first detected late last year in Wuhan, China. But figures are often unconfirmed and inconsistent.
The following interactive map, produced by Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, shows the most up-to-date, confirmed counts and locations based on data from a range of public health agencies around the world. The map is updated on a continual basis and the evolving dataset is publicly available.
Note that the map only shows national and state-level data, but does not include individual counties. To view the map by itself in full-screen mode, select the expand icon on the top right corner of it.
