With the rapid spread of the coronavirus around the world a new coronavirus map and live tracker has been created showing the locations and spread.

Coronavirus map and live tracker released

The coronavirus map and live tracker was created by the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering and tracks the coronavirus as it is discovered in countries around the world.
