The primary source of data for the map is DXY, “an online platform run by members of the Chinese medical community, which aggregates local media and government reports to provide COVID-19 cumulative case totals,” according to a Johns Hopkins blog post. (A full list of data sources for the map can be found here.)

As the map notes, it “relies upon publicly available data from multiple sources, that do not always agree.” The map creators are confirming case numbers with regional and local health departments before they update the map.

Here’s a closer look at coronavirus numbers in the U.S.

COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.

As the number of COVID-19 cases grows across the country, federal officials are working with state and local officials to make testing more accessible.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that gatherings of 50 people or more should be canceled for the next eight weeks and the Texas Education Commissioner said schools could be out through the duration of the school year.

Many San Antonio area-colleges and universities have already postponed or canceled classes due to the new coronavirus.
