The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University is tracking the spread of the disease worldwide in close to real-time.
The map updates several times an hour and includes a zoomable image pinpointing every confirmed case in the world to the county level.
The map is based on data reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, city and state-level authorities, the World Health Organization and other governmental health agencies around the world.
Johns Hopkins’s study found that the median incubation period of COVID-19 from exposure to the onset of symptoms is 5.1 days, researchers say. This means that the recommended 14-day quarantine period is a reasonable amount of time to monitor individuals for the development of the disease
The Johns Hopkins analysis shows that 97.5% of those infected will develop symptoms within 11.5 days of exposure. That means that only 1% will develop symptoms after release from a 14-day quarantine.
