A Global Look at COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

Coronavirus

As of July 13, 2020, there were 13,178,864 reported cases of COVID-19 across the globe.  At least 215 countries have documented cases, irrespective of residence, ethnicity or race all over the world showing the broad gauged impact of this virus.  It is clear this is a central governance concern for all of the world’s nations and not just here in the United States, although the U.S. has suffered more deaths and infections than any other country.  Here at the Institute, we are closely monitoring the U.S. and Brazilian situation and policy, especially in our ongoing research projects here and in Rio’s favelas.

Below we have listed websites you can check to gather COVID-19 information for many countries around the globe.  This is not an exhaustive list, so if you would like information for a particular country we have not included, please feel free to contact us at ipg@vt.edu and we will try to help you locate the relevant data.  You can also check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC website) for information on cases (by state) in the United States.  

Our nation’s leading epidemiology experts agree that wearing masks and practicing social distancing can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  The CDC has excellent guidelines in this area.  Together, we can stop the spread of this virus.
