Coronavirus is a new respiratory virus that was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan. It is spreading across the globe after infecting hundreds of Chinese citizens and claiming a number of lives. It is hard to keep up to date with the reports of the spread of this virus but luckily there is an online tool that lets you see all such cases throughout the world.

Pulling the data from the World Health Organization and the centres for disease control in the US, China, and Europe, the Center for Systems Science and Engineering has built a dashboard that lists out all the confirmed and suspected cases of the Coronavirus. The dashboard also records the recovered patients as well as deaths caused by the virus across the globe.

How does the tool work?

The dashboard made by Centre for Systems Science and Engineering is accessible to the common people via this link here. It shows the confirmed and suspected cases of the Coronavirus as red dots on the world map. Once a user clicks on a dot, it displays the information on the Coronavirus victims in that specific area including the number of confirmed deaths and patients who have managed to recover from the disease.
