The virus can be passed from one human to another human, and experts are hurrying up to research on it and do well to stop it from further spread.

A dashboard on the Johns Hopkins University has been designed to use data from the CDC and WHO to map the spread of the disease in real-time and fight and misinformation that might spread.

The death toll of the coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China, is estimated to have now reached 81, and more than 2800 people have been infected by the virus.

The map created by researchers at Johns Hopkins is the most reliable way to track and visualizes all reports about the coronavirus outbreak with the use of data from the CDC , China CDC, WHO , and other sources with the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping.

With fresh reports coming in, the map is quick to keep track of all confirmed cases, all recordings deaths, and total recoveries. The map has red dot that represent an outbreak in a location with the size of the red dot being in correspondence to the relative size of each epidemic. When you click on a particular case, it shows the information for that region.

In the fear, panic and confusion that often accompanies the aftermath of every disease outbreak, the spread of false information can be challenging to avoid. Adding to the uncertainty that currently exists, China appears to have suppressed information about the outbreak of the illness in its early days.

There is information about at least eight people who were arrested in China, and accused of “forwarding or publishing false information on the Chinese internet space without verification” about the now widespread coronavirus. Many journalists have reported being threatened and detained after making reports on the virus.

One of the chart on the dashboard reveals how fast the infection has now spread in mainland China in comparison to the rest of the world.

At present, the virus has spread from China to 13 other countries, including France, the US, Australia, and Japan. Experts now suspect that the actual number of people infected by the virus is much higher than the reported total.

Health officials have reasons to believe that the Wuhan coronavirus will not be as disastrous as SARS, but as a precautionary measure, Wuhan has now been quarantined, and about 12 other Chinese cities have travel restrictions, that currently affects an estimated 33 million people.
