A new interactive map from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine London School allows you to compare how Covid-19 compares to previous virulent epidemics. The Covid 2019 Tracker map visualizes the spread of Covid-19 around the world and allows you to compare this outbreak with the 2003 SARS, 2014 Ebola and 2009 Swine Flu epidemics.

The Covid-2019 Tracker map helps to visualize how virulent the Covid-19 really is. It shows how Coronavirus has already affected more countries than Ebola and has killed more people than SARS. However the map and the ‘Summary’ data also shows that so far Covid-19 has proved far less fatal than Ebola and has affected far fewer countries than Swine Flu.

The data on the Covid-2019 Tracker map is being updated daily based on information from the World Health Organisation.
