The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a global health emergency over the outbreak of a new coronavirus, which originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
At least 636 people have died in mainland China. Two deaths have been reported elsewhere – one in Hong Kong and one in the Philippines – while more than 31,000 have been infected worldwide, the vast majority of them in China. Countries around the world are trying all means to restrict the spread of the epidemic.
There are so many different apps provide information on the new strain of coronavirus that originated in China’s Wuhan city. Two French ex-pats living in Taiwan have created an app that shows real-time updates on coronavirus, pulling data from World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) among other sources, reported Business Insider.
