Coronavirus updates

These are updates as I get them, obviously the data is dynamic most of these figures change as I write them. And some figures posted are hours out of date from the time I write them to when you read them, such is the speed of the coronavirus. I am just doing this to track the information for myself. Also important to note these are official figures and probably doesn’t match the reality on the ground, such is the complication that is coronavirus.

Total number of global cases has surpassed 530,000, including more than 24,000 fatalities. Over 122,000 patients are reported to have recovered.
