Monitoring the Impact of Health Outbreaks with Smarter Cities

The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University has developed an interactive web-based dashboard, to visualize and track reported cases in real-time. The dashboard illustrates the location and number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, deaths and recoveries for all affected countries. It was developed to provide researchers, public health authorities and the general public with a user-friendly tool to track the outbreak as it unfolds. This along with other adjacent data sources can be used to effectively monitor and aid in the reduction of this and other outbreaks from spreading. China has reacted quickly to respond to the monitoring of the spread of this outbreak and Reuters reports that this could be forward looking to reshaping China’s smart cities.
