There’s so much coverage regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) right now that I want to share with you my go-to resources/links to help me stay up-to-date on coronavirus news.
1. Live Counts
John Hopkins Interactive Map
For live counts, I head to the interactive map by John Hopkins Univerisity which shows the confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries. For Canada, you can even drill down the data by province.
Aside from the John Hopkins interactive map, I like to look at the coronavirus data from Worldometer. They seem to be a bit faster at updating the data than John Hopkins. I also like the fact that they show the change in new cases and they provide more details about specific cases at the end of the page.
2. Fresh Headlines
Google News by Timeframe of Interest
I also like to read fresh headlines so I optimize my Google search with the keyword “coronavirus,” select for “News” and choose “Past Hour” as the timeframe. Of course, you can select for whatever timeframe you are interested in.
CNBC Live Updates
CNBC’s live blog updates is well-organized and well-written. They also note when the blog was last updated.
3. Other Good Reads
South China Morning Post
The South China Morning Post is probably my favourite online publication in the world. I enjoy their content in general which includes articles as well as videos.
