If you're like me, you may be obsessed with tracking the progress of the Coronavirus pandemic. I've found a few websites that are frequently updated and will give you information in various formats, depending on what you want to see. Let's get straight to them.|
Bing COVID Tracker
This is a live worldwide map that you can zoom in and out of, that includes the number of active, recovered and fatal cases. It seems to be considerably up to date as it polls data from: CDC, WHO, ECDC and Wikipedia. It breaks down cases by country, but also by states within the United States.
This one is my personal favorite. It seems to be the most up to date, though it doesn't have a fancy map interface. It does provide historical graphs for each country affected by the outbreak, so you can use those for comparison. It also lists "new cases" reported though it's not very clear when those reset. For those in the US, it does not offer a breakdown by state, but I feel it has the most information.
Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center
This one has a similar, though darker/scarier, interface to the Bing maps above. It also offers a breakdown by state as well as a historical graph; though the graph is only for total cases and does not change when selecting a country or state. For whatever reason, the numbers here seem to always be at least a few hours behind.
JoseQ's Look at this Thing
Those three offer variations of similar information, so use at your discretion. We are certainly living in unprecedented times, and dealing with something we have never seen in our lifetimes. As they say, information is power so we do our best to stay as informed as possible. As more and more data is compiled from these cases, we should have a better picture of what to expect over the coming weeks and months.
If you have found other interesting sources of data, please feel free to share in the comments here or on Facebook.
