In the data table, each entry indicates the infection status in the format of “#-#-#-#” — a 4-sequel entry divided by dashes. The first sequel represents the number of confirmed cases, the second sequel represents suspected cases, the third sequel represents cured cases, the fourth sequel represents death cases.

Update Procedure

The country-level data is collected from WHO, while the data of each province in China is collected from multiple sources such as China’s NHC,Mapmiao and Baidu. Notably, we also refer to CDC to verify the virus spreading status in the U.S. To make a timely data and map updates, we collect the data every 4 hours, and verify the data quality per day. In addition, we plan to provide finer-scale data from China (the county level), U.S. (the state level) and Canada (the province level) in the next version.
