Tech giant Microsoft has just launched a free COVID-19 tracking webpage for desktop and mobile platforms.
The webpage displays the world map with bubbles which indicate the extent of the virus’s spread in various countries.
A pane on the left shows the total number of confirmed cases and a breakdown of the active, recovered, and fatal cases.
A list of countries is also displayed, ranked by the number of confirmed cases.
Users can zoom in on the map to view more information about particular regions and click on the bubbles or countries in the pane to check the number of confirmed cases for each country.
Underneath these statistics, a feed displays news reports and videos relating to COVID-19 in the applicable country.
Microsoft said it updates the site based on data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and Wikipedia.
Clicking on the information button in the left-hand pane will show when the data was last updated.
You can access the Covid-19 tracker page here on mobile and desktop from any countries of the world.
