Please note:  It has come to DPH attention that a malicious website pretending to be a live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unwitting internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website infects the computer with an information stealing program which can ex-filtrate a variety of sensitive data. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website. 03-12-20
