After the SARS-coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV), a new coronavirus virus (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in China since December 2019. As of 26th March 2020, there were more than 460,000 confirmed cases around the world and more than 200 countries and places affected by the virus. According to the assessment conducted by World Health Organization (WHO), the risk of acquiring the infection in the global level is very high.

The larger map used graduated colors to show the distribution of the cumulative number of confirmed cases per 100,000 persons of each place. Comparing with other places, China, South Korea, Iran, the United States, and a number of countries in Europe have recorded a higher proportion of confirmed cases in population. The cumulative number of death cases are shown by black circles of different size. Countries only have reported imported cases are hashed.

The five inset maps used the graduated colors to show the distribution of the cumulative number of confirmed cases at administrative units in selected countries. All administrative units in Mainland China, Italy and the United States have reported cases, while some administrative units in South Korea and Japan have zero confirmed cases. Administrative unit in each country with the highest number of confirmed cases included Hubei province in Mainland China, Daegu city in South Korea, Hokkaido prefectures in Japan, Lombardia in Italy, and New York State in the United States.

Currently, there is no effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2. To prevent virus transmission, the best precautions are: wash hands frequently; avoid close and prolonged contacts with crowds in the community; wear a surgical mask if there are respiratory symptoms.

繼沙士冠狀病毒及中東呼吸綜合症冠狀病毒,一種新型冠狀病毒(SARS-CoV-2) 於2019年12月於中國出現。截至2020年3月26日,全球已有多於 460,000例確診病例和200多個國家及地區受到這個病毒的影響。根據世界衛生組織(WHO)的風險評估,在全球層面的感染風險都非常高。

較大的地圖使用漸變色顯示了各地方每10萬人口中確診病例的累積數目的分佈。與其他國家比較,中國、韓國、伊朗、美國及歐洲多個國家的確診病例比例相對高。黑色圓點大小顯示了每個國家/地方的SARS-CoV-2累積死亡數目。目前只有輸入個案的國家則以斜線表示。

五張插圖顯示了某些國家中已確診病例的累計數目於行政區域的分佈。中國、意大利和美國的所有行政區域都有確診病例報告,而韓國和日本則有些行政區域仍保持零個案。各國家最高確診病例數目的行政區域包括中國的湖北省、韓國的大邱市、日本的北海道縣、意大利的倫巴底大區及美國的紐約州。

現時還沒有有效新型冠狀病毒疫苗。為防止病毒傳播,避免近距離和長時間接觸人群、勤洗手、如有呼吸系統徵狀必須佩戴口罩。
