This Coronavirus Dashboard Gives You Live Global Tracking Of Deadly Infections
The coronavirus live dashboard gives us an incredibly detailed look at the coronavirus thanks to it pulling data from multiple sources including the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), along with several disease prevention agencies in China.
As we reported last week, the current iteration of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) originated in Wuhan City, China in December 2019. The novel strain of coronavirus was traced on December 31, 2019 and many scientists seem to think that the virus originated in bats.
The CDC lists the following symptoms for the coronavirus: fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Additionally, these symptoms can appear anywhere from 2 to 14 days after a person has been initially exposed.
As of Monday morning, total confirmed cases of the coronavirus have reached 17,489, with the majority of those (over 17,300) occurring in mainland China according to the live dashboard. The U.S. currently has 11 confirmed cases. So far, a total of 362 deaths globally have been attributed to the coronavirus.
Due to the ongoing concerns over the coronavirus, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines have all (at least temporarily) suspended flights to mainland China. This is to be expected considering that the WHO has classified the coronavirus as a global public health emergency.
Tech companies have also been affected, with Apple temporarily closing all its stores and offices in China due to fears concerning the outbreak. There are also reports that factory closures could delay the introduction of the iPhone SE 2, which was rumored to launch during the first half of 2020.
