Researchers from John Hopkins University have published an online map that tracks the corona virus spreading from China all over the world. Using the World Health Organization data on the map, people who are infected, healed patients and deaths are updated.
Researchers from the John Hopkins University System Science and Engineering Center in the U.S. have developed an online panel that tracks the movement of the new deadly coronavirus, which has spread from the People’s Republic of China and has killed dozens of people worldwide.
Using the data from the World Health Organization (WHO) and epidemic control centers in the USA, China and Europe, the panel displays all confirmed and suspected corona virus cases as well as patient records that heal and result in death.
Spreading all over the world
The new virus, which appeared in Wuhan, China last December, has caused 41 deaths and approximately 1000 ills so far. While it is confirmed that there are cases in the USA and Europe, the disease shows symptoms of pneumonia. The new fatal virus is from the same family as viruses that cause fatal diseases such as SARS and MERS.
The number of confirmed cases on the online panel so far is as follows: 916 in mainland China, 5 in Thailand, 3 in Taiwan and Singapore, 2 in Australia, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Japan, USA, Vietnam and France. 1 confirmed case of coronavirus occurred. ABC News states that all five patients are controlled for suspected coronavirus.
A 1,000-bed hospital was started to be built in the city of Wuhan, which was quarantined while the deadly coronavirus epidemic continued. Officials say the construction of the hospital will be completed within 6 days. The reason for the new construction is that the existing hospitals in the city experience shortage of beds and medical supplies and reject patients who show the symptoms of coronavirus disease for these reasons. This caused criticism with authorities in Wuhan that the central government was not able to respond quickly enough to the outbreak.
