The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has sickened at least 167,515 people and killed 6,606, according to the latest World Health Organization data release 16 March 2020. The total number of cases of infection is believed to be higher than what has been reported due to limited testing.

Countries around the world have restricted travel and are urging citizens to avoid crowds which could spread the virus. The Grasswire team is bringing together information from around the world highlighting how governments and private organizations are reacting to the disease.
