it appears that Johns Hopkins has stopped updating its GIS Data page for the virus. Not updated since 11PM EST Jan 28.
I wouldn't worry about it... yesterday BNO News went something like 10 hours without updating their stats or map as well. There are a bunch of helpful
resources to cross-reference when one is lagging behind:
Resource #1: TheWuhanVirus.com
Live updates from international news sources
Live data covering 1) number of official infected individuals, 2) number of official deaths from the virus, 3) number of countries with official
confirmed infected cases currently, as well as other data if you scroll further down
You can also select "World" instead of just "China" for the map:
Resource #2: MapHub Fuuuuuuu
This is the best resource I've used for tracking ongoing "possible cases", and to see when they have been confirmed positive or negative (green areas
indicate a suspected case has been deemed negative for Coronavirus and dark organge means positive confirmation of Coronavirus)
It also displays travel restrictions, school closings (at least in one area of China, where schools are closed until February 17th), border closings
and active quarantines.
Resource #3: BNO News - Coronavirus Updates
This resource has been slow to update in comparison with others like the Maphub resource listed above, but it is a good resource to check less
frequently for overall stats on China's mainland numbers, bordering region numbers and international numbers - it also outlines stats for the number
of patients who are "critical", "stable", etc. (although these stats seem to be fewer and farther between). Still a good resource to cross-reference
with some of these other options.
Resource #4: the Johns Hopkins GIS Map (the one you mentioned)
Another map-type of resource that shows you the density & general footprint of confirmed cases, by territory and with stats when you click on each
"marker". Similar to the BNO News resource listed above, I've noticed this map does not seem to update as frequently as MapHub, but like BNO News is
also seemingly reliable as a resource worth checking every day or so to cross-reference the numbers from some of these other sources.
