COVID-19, the disease caused by a novel coronavirus first identified late last year in Wuhan, China, has spread across the globe. The charts and maps below will update automatically each day with the latest data compiled from WHO and other sources by researchers at Johns Hopkins University.

Toggle between the β€œTotal Cases,” β€œNew Cases,” and β€œDeaths” tabs to track the coronavirus outbreak.

The New Cases tab shows what experts call the β€œepidemic curve,” in which the number of cases diagnosed each day typically rises over time and then falls as an epidemic comes under control or naturally burns out. That is not yet happening with COVID-19.

This table tracks deaths and confirmed cases by country, sorted in descending order by the total number of deaths. Counts of confirmed cases will reflect, in large part, the number of COVID-19 tests run in each country. So the death counts provide a clearer picture of how hard countries have been hit by the virus.

The maps below show the rates of confirmed cases and deaths in each country relative to the size of their populations. Again, given differences in the proportion of people tested in each country, the death rate maps will provide a clearer view of the worst-affected countries. Countries shown in white have yet to report cases or deaths.

On Mar. 19, China reported no new domestic COVID-19 cases β€” a first since its outbreak began. Some of the worst-affected countries are in Europe. The maps below show a zoomed-in view of the continent. Iceland stands out in the confirmed cases map because the island nation is rolling out testing across its general population, catching a large number of infected people without symptoms who are thought to be driving the disease’s spread.
