Bloomberg has created several data visualizations mapping the outbreak of the coronavirus. The visualizations show that there have been more than 20,000 confirmed cases and over 400 deaths. The visualizations also highlight that the virus has led to a high number of flight cancellations. For example, nearly one-quarter of domestic flights in China on January 28, 2020, never took off, compared to one percent of flights on the same day a year earlier.
