Since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in December 2019, the illness has become a pandemic, touching every corner of the planet. The maps and charts below show the extent of the spread, and will be updated daily with data gathered from dozens of sources by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.
Where COVID-19 is spreading in the U.S.
Since March, the U.S. has had more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than any other country.
