In China, COVID-19 Corona virus, Issues

John Hopkins University must be congratulated for making available extremely useful near real time data on the current outbreak of coronavirus; certainly a much more serious response when compared with the anti-China, increasingly racist, propaganda appearing in some parts of the western media.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering has built and is regularly updating an online dashboard for tracking the worldwide spread of the coronavirus outbreak that began in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

The dashboard, built by a team at the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering and regularly updated with data from the WHO, CDC, and other sources, illustrates how the virus is spreading in China and beyond

The sources JHU is using for the real time series include: WHO, CDC, ECDC, NHC and DXY. There is also a blog with further information on public health.

The site displays statistics about deaths and confirmed cases of coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV, across a worldwide map. It also allows visitors to download the data for free and provides a link to a downloadable Google Sheet that contains information on confirmed and suspected cases

Lauren Gardner, co-director of the Center for Systems Science and Engineering and a civil engineering professor at Johns Hopkins, said:

We built this dashboard because we think it is important for the public to have an understanding of the outbreak situation as it unfolds with transparent data sources. For the research community, this data will become more valuable as we continue to collect it over time. Making the data available for download is “critical” for researchers.
Although there is still a very long way to go, with no room for even the slightest complacency, Chinese medical teams are fighting night and day to contain the virus, not only for their own country for humanity.
