This is a developing story and we will continue to add more interesting maps to the existing list. Last updated on March 23.
Since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019, the disease has spread across the world, affecting over 200,000 people in 166 countries and more than 8,700 deaths. The World Health Organization called it a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Below are some of the best maps tracking the spread of Coronavirus.
WHO Situation Dashboard
World Health Organization’s Situation Dashboard provide the latest updates on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These include updated numbers of infected people, deaths, affected countries and other related data regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. Built on an ArcGIS platform, this dashboard could be considered to be the most authentic source when it comes to the statistics since the data source is from WHO. However, it should be noted that the WHO reported case numbers are conservative, and likely represent an undercount of the true number of coronavirus cases, especially in China.
Confirmed cases reported between February 13 and 19 include both laboratory-confirmed and clinically diagnosed (only applicable to Hubei province); for all other dates, only laboratory-confirmed cases are shown.
Tracking COVID 19 by HERE Technologies
This map created by HERE Technologies shows the near real-time status based on data from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University and DXY.
While one can explore these numbers by country, in the case of China, the data is available by province. There is also a time slider to get a snapshot of the spread of the virus daywise since January 23, 2020. A user can select any of the bubbles on the map either by selecting it directly on the map (tapping if you are on mobile) or by selecting the corresponding card in the sidebar. If you are looking for a specific city, you can also navigate using the autocomplete search box.
