Countries with Confirmed Cases of Novel Coronavirus

At the time of writing, the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) that originated in Wuhan, China in December 2019 has infected nearly 3,000 individuals, killing more than 80 and shutting down over a dozen Chinese cities. Exported cases have been reported in at least 15 countries worldwide, and there have been five confirmed cases of the pneumonia-like illness in the United States, all of whom had recently traveled to Wuhan.  The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has begun screening for the novel coronavirus at major US airports, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has urged countries to prepare for the continued spread of the virus.
