The death toll of the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China, has killed over 1,000, and the virus has infected more than 42,000 people. On January 30, the World Health Organisation (WHO) officially declared it a global health emergency.
As the virus spreads and people start to panic, experts have created some tools that are useful for tracking the infection.
