COVID-19 Tracker

Constant changes and information overload relating to the COVID-19 pandemic can be hard to follow, but intuitive resources ease some of this concern. Updated nearly in real time, this COVID-19 Tracker from the search engine Bing (operated by Microsoft) is one such resource. The resource has several features that allow users to better understand the global impact of the virus. For instance, users can browse cases by location and compare cases by region. The interactive world map tracks active and recovered cases, as well as fatalities. Additionally, the site ranks countries by confirmed cases. The Graphs tab (located in the upper right corner) leads users to various other data displays, including a color-coded chart of cities with the highest number of cases, ranked through a spatial representation. Users should note that the site relies on multiple information sources (the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, Wikipedia, and 24/7 Wall St.), which can create occasional data discrepancies.
