Mapping the Coronavirus

First off …

Today marks a day of rotating strike action by ETFO members in the following districts:

  • Durham
  • Lambton Kent
  • Algoma

Details here.


You can’t turn on the news on radio or television or read any news anywhere that a story about the Coronavirus doesn’t show up. It’s also the source of memes spreading on social media. By itself, that’s a lesson in media.

John Hopkins University has created an interactive map that’s regularly updated to show the spread of the virus. You can access it here.

The opening default centres itself on China where most of the cases have been found.

But, as we know from the news reports, it’s not isolated there.

In the bottom right corner, you can zoom out to get a world-wide perspective.

Beyond the visuals, keep yourself informed by country in the top left scroll box or by specific city/area in the scroll box on the right side of the screen.

Details about the project can be found here.

Sadly, there is no vaccine currently that will cure anyone infected. In the meantime, common sense advice is the best we have.
