The deadly coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, and you can use an online dashboard to keep up with all reported cases. The Center for Systems Science and Engineering has built a tool pulling in data from the World Health Organization, as well as the centers for disease control in the US, China and Europe. It shows all confirmed, suspected and recovered coronavirus patients, as well as deaths.

Coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, has so far killed more than 3,400 people and infected over 101,000. Cases have been confirmed in North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America and Australia, with the illness exhibiting pneumonia-like symptoms. It was first reported to the World Health Organization on Dec. 31, 2019, with Chinese scientists linking the disease to a family of viruses known as coronaviruses that include the deadly SARS and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). 

As of 2:30 p.m. PT on March 6, the dashboard showed 3,460 deaths. There are 80,573 confirmed cases in mainland China, 6,593 in South Korea, 4,747 in Iran, 4,636 in Italy, 670 in Germany, 653 in France, 420 in Japan, 400 in Spain, 260 in the US, 214 in Switzerland, 163 in the UK and 130 in Singapore. The dashboard shows deaths in China, the US, the UK, Australia, Italy, South Korea, Japan, France, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Philippines, Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, San Marino, Taiwan, Thailand and the Diamond Princess cruise ship.

The dashboard shows the virus has spread to 99 countries, with even the smallest areas including Faroe Islands and Vatican City reporting cases. Around 55,800 people have recovered from the virus.
