CoVid-19 (coronavirus) Mapping Tool

Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine(LSHTM) have developed an online map which presents the latest information on the spread of CoVid-19 and allows anyone to follow the outbreak and compare this data with the spread of Ebola and SARS. See the following weblink from this page to try it. http://vac-lshtm.shinyapps.io/ncov_tracker/

Tabs on the LSHTM Tool give links to keep you up to date from the best authorities on CoVid-19 in WHO and CDC.

The LSHTM is a great source of Health and Demographic research. Over 120 years it has worked on health issues, originally on seamen and civil servants sent from England to the tropics and the health issues of indigenous people. You can learn more about this institution at the following link: http://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/research-action/lshtm-120/historical-timeline

The Long Service Leave which all Australian employees now enjoy, originates from the "tropical" leave granted to English civil servants sent to places like Australia and India to restore their health from spending too long in the tropics. Now Austalians health is better than most of countries but we still have tropo leave.
