Truth be told, the Wuhan Virus or coronavirus has been spreading all over the world at an alarming rate.

At first, news reports were only updating the situation over in Wuhan such as how the coronavirus stemmed from the market selling wild animals in Wuhan and various speculations and comparisons to SARS.

Slowly though, the virus began spreading all over the world and cropping up in other countries like Australia, France, Malaysia and Singapore.

Figures keep climbing and at the time of writing over 130 deaths and over 6000 cases all over the world, with most being in China.

With so many news reports and information floating all over the internet, it would be immensely helpful if someone came up with a concise website to update the numbers and latest news so we don’t all drown in it.

Well, someone did.
