By BBN Staff: The deadly novel coronavirus, believed to have originated in Wuhan, China has claimed over 350 lives.
Researchers developed a map to track the global spread of the virus worldwide.

There are now 11 cases of the novel coronavirus in the United States of America.
Around the world, medical experts are grappling to deal with the outbreak.
Several countries have activated their own quarantine plans to deal with the situation.
As the outbreak continues, more than 50 million people in China are under quarantine, travel restrictions are being issued from countries all over the world, and countries have begun evacuating their diplomats from China as the situation worsens.
The World Health Organization recently declared the coronavirus outbreak a global emergency and even Belize has begun to impose travel restrictions as the situation develops.
The novel coronavirus is a part of a family of viruses that are found in animals that made the cross-species jump to humans.
