The official map from John's Hopkins is:
Which is an iframe embed from ArcGIS.

All the data for the map is freely available on github in csv form

Is there an embed code for the dashboard?
Yes, but please provide credit by citing “Johns Hopkins University” or “Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering.” This is the embed code:. <iframe width="650" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" title="2019-nCoV" src="/gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Embed/index.html?webmap=14aa9e5660cf42b5b4b546dec6ceec7c&extent=77.3846,11.535,163.5174,52.8632&zoom=true&previewImage=false&scale=true&disable_scroll=true&theme=light"></iframe>

I blame John Hopkins for allowing hackers to be able to use an iFrame. The us of which makes it very, very easy for a site to perform malicious activites on your computer embedding ransom ware scripts on a seemingly harmless looking web page that has actual data. That's a hard fail by John's Hopkins and iFrames are so 1970s. ;)

one of our managers had sent us the “hackers” version. We told him now we know what he does at night.
