Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE)

Anyway, unless the government is withholding information from the public to me the measures being taken against COVID-19 seems an overblown response. I probably have a higher probability of meeting my end in a auto accident on the way to the store this afternoon. Or dying from the more familiar flu. Only the passage of time will reveal if it is justified or if the cure is more damaging than the illness.
Still an interesting map about where and where not this virus is expanding. That reveals some mysterious anomalies.
Interestingly Johns Hopkins was at the forefront of strategy against the 1918 Great Influenza. Having only recently, at that time, surpassed the medical knowledge in Germany [ Read “The Great Influenza - the epic story of the deadliest plague in history” by John M. Barry. Many people were fine at breakfast and dead by dinner time]
A popular children’s rhyme at the time:
I have a little bird
It’s name is Enza
I left the window open
And in flew Enza.
People always seek a way to deal with stressful situations.
