The deadly coronavirus continues to spread around the world, and you can use an online dashboard to keep track of all reported cases. John Hopkins University and the Medicine Center for Systems Science and Engineering have built a tool that collects data from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S., China and Europe and governments around the world. It shows all confirmed, suspected, recovered, and deceased coronavirus patients, as well as the number of people tested.

The coronavirus, native to Wuhan, China, has killed 210,000 people to date and infected 3 million people as of 2:00 PM PT on April 27, according to the dashboard.

The 10 countries with the highest number of cases are the US with 985,000; Spain with 229,000; Italy with 199,000; France with 165,000; Germany with 158,000; the UK with 158,000; Turkey with 112,000; Iran with 91,000; Russia with 87,000; and mainland China with 83,000. The dashboard shows that the virus has spread to 185 countries.

The US has the highest death toll, at over 55,000. About 5.4 million people have been tested in the United States. Italy has reported 26,000 fatalities; Spain 23,000; France 23,000; the UK 21,000; Belgium 7,200; Iran 5,800; Germany 6,000; and China 4600 fatalities.

The outbreak was first reported to the World Health Organization on December 31, 2019, with Chinese scientists associating the disease with a family of viruses known as coronaviruses, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and the Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (MERS).
