The Center for Systems Science and Engineering has created an online dashboard to show the distribution of the new coronavirus from China. The online map shows all confirmed cases of the disease, as well as deaths caused by it.

At the time of publication, the panel showed 2794 confirmed cases in China, 8 in Thailand, 8 in Hong Kong, 4 in Australia, 5 in the USA, and 4 in Japan. As you can see, the geography of distribution has already gone far beyond China and is expanding every day. Judging by the online map, the number of cases also grows exponentially, despite quarantine measures.
Since January 23, nobody is allowed to leave Wuhan, and railway stations and airports were closed. Many airlines have canceled all flights to China.
Chinese scientists have found that snakes are the likely source of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus.
It is expected that by the beginning of February, the hospital for a thousand of coronavirus-infected patients in Wuhan will be ready. A building for 1000 beds will be built on an area of 25 thousand square meters. It will have a modular design and will be assembled from small finished blocks.
Special equipment is already working on the site, clearing the territory, and preparing a place for the foundation.
Several hundred workers were mobilized for construction in the shortest possible time. The authorities pay workers up to 1,200 yuan ($173) per day, which is three times more than their usual wages, to speed up the work process.
A hospital of a similar type was built in 2003 in Beijing in seven days when the outbreak of the SARS coronavirus occurred in the city.
The National Health Commission of China has reported that the number of people infected with the new deadly coronavirus has risen to 830. According to the Chinese authorities, 80 deaths from coronavirus infection were recorded.
