[LIVE] Coronavirus Pandemic: Real Time Counter, World Map, News
Started streaming 15 hours ago Roylab Stats
Coronavirus Live Streaming: Breaking news, world Map and live counter on confirmed cases and recovered cases. I started this live stream on Jan 26th, and since Jan 30th I have been streaming this without stopping. Many people are worried about the spread of coronavirus. For anyone that wants to know the real-time progression of the worldwide spread of this virus, I offer this live stream. The purpose is not to instill fear or panic, nor is it to necessarily comfort; I just want to present the data to help inform the public of the current situation. The purpose of this stream is to show basic information and data to understand the situation easily. For detail information, please visit our reference sites.
About this data
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.
HOW IT SPREADS
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.
For informational purposes only. Consult your local medical authority for advice.

The Washington Post: Coronavirus Updates
Important developments in the coronavirus pandemic
|Presented by Slack|
The United States has more confirmed covid-19 deaths than any other nation, with nearly 19,000 fatal cases, including more than 2,000 reported on Friday alone. The country also accounts for nearly 30 percent of the world’s known infections: about 500,000 out of more than 1.7 million, although all these figures are probably too low due to a general scarcity of coronavirus testing and suspect reports from such countries as China.
U.S. governors have asked Congress for $500 billion in rescue funds, as many states face massive budget shortfalls after paying for the public health responses at the outbreak’s front lines. The economic crisis has also pushed the Postal Service to the brink of collapse, we report in a story about President Trump’s refusal to bail out the mail service.
The IRS has created an online tool to help people who don’t file taxes, such as many Social Security recipients, get their stimulus payments sooner. Payments of up to $1,200 a person will be sent to most people’s bank accounts starting next week, according to the tax agency. Find out more about how you can track your payment.
Another stimulus program to loan $349 billion to small businesses is faltering, The Post reports: “Banks, tasked with disbursing the money, have been confused about the rules, which has delayed lending. Entrepreneurs are reporting troubles applying. And even some who make it through the application process say they’re facing dilemmas about how to use the money.” Read more here.
Concerned that last month’s stimulus package was too generous with unemployment benefits, Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia has tweaked rules to make it more difficult for gig workers to get money and easier for businesses to avoid paying workers sick and family leave. The full report can be found here.
The pandemic has turbocharged a movement to eliminate SAT and ACT testing requirements for college applicants. Advocates have argued for years that the tests penalize freshmen who lack access to good teachers and prep courses. We report that a record number of schools have made the tests optional in the past few weeks — “actions that could presage a broad shift away from admissions testing in higher education.”
A psychologist explains why the pandemic is making you dream about organizing a duck boat tour at an eerily deserted shopping mall where all the stores are shrouded in wrapping paper, or, you know, whatever’s on your subconscious.
Sunday, April 12, 2020 The latest
The brain trust behind the federal government’s war on the coronavirus is “a bureaucratic nesting doll” of oft-competing task forces that have produced no clear plan to end the crisis, The Washington Post reports. There is the official task force led by Vice President Pence; the “shadow task force” led by presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner; the new “Opening Our Country Council”; and a splinter group of medical professionals. And then there is President Trump, who often overrides and undermines whatever decisions these groups manage to make. Read our story on the problems with this system, based on interviews with 22 White House insiders.

|Your questions, answered
“I have heard that pollution has greatly decreased recently as a result of reduced air and vehicular traffic. Is this so? Is the impact large enough to convince those who do not ‘believe’ in global warming to see the wisdom in reducing emissions?” — Christine in California
We can’t predict how people will respond to the evidence, but yes, the global economic shutdown appears to be significantly reducing all the muck in the atmosphere.
The notoriously smoggy Los Angeles region has seen marked drops in nitrogen dioxide and fine particulate pollution since residents were ordered to stay at home — “the longest stretch of ‘good’ air quality in March seen since at least 1995,” The Post writes.
Similar improvements have been mapped in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Ohio Valley and Southwest — and across the world as far away as China. And carbon dioxide emissions that drive global warming have temporarily relented, somewhat, after many flights were grounded.
It’s still unclear what this data means for the long-term health of the planet, but if there is any silver lining to the global crisis, it’s been the chance for scientists to study a drastic reduction in pollution in real time. Read our story for more details and check out maps comparing March 2019 to March 2020.
