Coronavirus Now: Deaths & Map of Confirmed COVID-19 Cases

Heavy Heavy breaking news

Confirmed cases of novel Wuhan coronavirus (now officially known as COVID-19) now number at more than 80,000, so it’s more important than ever to stay informed about cases around the world and in the United States. Fifty-six deaths have been recorded outside of China. There is also one new case in northern California that might be community spread, but the details are still being determined, the CDC reported. Here is a look at the confirmed cases, including maps of where the confirmed cases are, and a look at where the deaths have been.


There Are More Than 80,000 Confirmed Cases And More than 2,700 Deaths

As of February 26, 81,380 people have been confirmed to have COVID-19 (also known as the Wuhan coronavirus), according to BNO. There have been 2,771 fatalities, most in China.

The following map of confirmed cases in the U.S. and worldwide was shared by BNO News. You may need to zoom into the map to see the cases in the United States, which so far number at two, or cases in other countries across the world.

Another map worldwide is being maintained here which tracks confirmed cases and deaths. A mobile version of the map is here. The map pulls from WHO, CDC,  NHC, and Dingxiangyuan sources and is being maintained by people with JHU.edu. Note that the “total recovered” number might be a bit misleading, as it doesn’t account for people who may never have needed to go to the hospital. The total deaths number is being kept updated with the most current numbers released.

Another map sourcing the most recent news about the virus can be found here.

Please consult your local news for the most recent information about virus cases, confirmed or unconfirmed. If you are concerned about your symptoms, talk with your doctor right away.

The CDC has also released a global map of cases around the world, last updated on February 25.

60 Confirmed Cases in the United States

According to the CDC, the cases in the United States include at least 16 confirmed cases tested in the U.S. through health surveillance systems (included two person-to-person spread cases), plus 36 cases from the Diamond Princess cruise ship and three from Wuhan, China. That still leaves a few unaccounted for. (BNO estimates 60 cases while other sources estimate 57 cases in the U.S.) The CDC is no longer providing a U.S. map of cases.

Here’s a look at the confirmed cases in the U.S.

  • Arizona – 1 case. One case is in Maricopa County, Arizona. The person is a member of the “Arizona State University community” but did not live in school housing, Business Insider reported.  They had recently traveled from Wuhan and they live in Tempe, CBS News reported.
  • California – 11 cases
    • A new case was reported in northern California on February 26, NBC Bay Area reported. This one’s not connected to a cruise ship and it might be the first instance of “community spread,” reported Ian Cull of NBC. The person didn’t travel to infected areas or come into contact with someone with COVID-19, but the CDC said it was possible that “the patient may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected.” NBC later confirmed the case was a person from Solano County who is now being treated in Sacramento County.
    • Two cases in San Diego (these were cases evacuated from China by the United States.)
    • Two cases in Santa Clara County –  ABC 7 reported one case is a man that has been self-isolating since he returned from Wuhan on January 24 and has not been very sick or needed hospitalization. Another case was a woman who was in Wuhan, China, confirmed on February 2, ABC 7 reported.
    • Two cases in San Benito County – These involve a husband and wife who are 57 and the husband had traveled to Wuhan, Business Insider reported. They are being treated at a hospital at the University of California and were taken to the hospital after their symptoms worsened.
    • One case in Los Angeles County – The LA individual was a Wuhan resident traveling through the Los Angeles International Airport, heading to China, when he felt sick, Business Insider reported.
    • One case in Orange County – Orange County officials do not believe person-to-person transmission occurred in the county. That person made a full recovery.
    • Humboldt County – A case was confirmed in Humboldt County, Jefferson Public Radio reported on February 23. The person is self-isolating at home and doing well and close contacts are being monitored. A close contact is “indeterminate,” KRCR reported.

Some have already fully recovered, he said.
