GISAID - Tracking of viral evolution by submitted country

What is GISAID? 

The GISAID Initiative promotes the rapid sharing of data from all influenza viruses and the coronavirus causing COVID-19. This includes genetic sequence and related clinical and epidemiological data associated with human viruses, and geographical as well as species-specific data associated with avian and other animal viruses, to help researchers understand how viruses evolve and spread during epidemics and pandemics. 

Nextstrain - Phylogeny tracking in real-time

Nextstrain is an open-source project to harness the scientific and public health potential of pathogen genome data. It's goal is to aid epidemiological understanding and improve outbreak response. 

An incredible tool which shows evolution of viruses in real-time by sequencing of samples
