Australia COVID-19 tracker Map

Following up on the examples created before, in this examples we have created for other countries, here’s an example for Australia with real time information about confirmed COVID-19 cases, the new coronavirus outbreak.

You can download the import file.

The data is being fetched from Johns Hopkins University open repository of data for COVID-19. Make sure to credit them in your projects.

To create such a map, you need some custom code to fetch the external content. I have created a gist with the code used for the map above.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in late 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, and has since spread globally, resulting in a coronavirus pandemic, which as the time of this writing, is still ongoing.
