A series of maps has revealed how the coronavirus outbreak has spread through China and leaped to at least 26 other countries around the world.

More than 74,000 people have now been infected with the virus in China and 2,006 people have died there, but international cases continue to crop up.

They have been found in 26 countries and three Chinese territories, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

Iran today became the latest country to declare the infection had spread there, confirming there are now two patients being treated in Qom, south of Tehran.

And South Korea almost doubled its number of patients from 31 to 51 overnight, making it one of the worst affected places alongside Japan and Singapore.

Experts say they expect international cases to keep appearing as the number of patients continues to soar in China and that it would be ‘unwise’ and ‘complacent’ to assume the outbreak was under control.

The maps below show a time lapse of the dates when each country or region of China declared its first confirmed case of the coronavirus
