Coronavirus cases are on the rise and at least 550 people have been killed so far. Countries around the world are trying all means to restrict the spread of the epidemic.

There are different apps that provide information on the new strain of coronavirus that originated in China's Wuhan city. Two French expats living in Taiwan have created an app that shows real-time updates on coronavirus, pulling data from World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) among other sources, reported Business Insider.
