All the countries coronavirus has spread to so far, mapped

As coronavirus continues to spread across the world, there's understandably a lot of panic going around.

President Trump has announced that travel from Europe (excluding the UK and Ireland) will be stopped for 30 days. Italy is on lockdown, the Spanish football league has been postponed and the NBA is off too. Even RuPaul's Drag Con was cancelled.

If you've been following the news, it looks like coronavirus has spread across the entire world. But has it?

A map released by the Center for Disease Control on 13 March, based on World Health Organization figures, gives a visual representation of the countries where people have tested positive for the virus.

About 80,950 people in China have been infected with coronavirus since its emergence in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, in December. But there have also been over 30,000 cases outside China, according to WHO's figures.

Italy has now overtaken South Korea as the country with the most cases outside China. In China, cases are dropping, but in the rest of the world they're still rising.

Here's the latest WHO information and the most up-to-date NHS guidelines (if you're reading from the UK).
