It is a website developed to track and display the number of COVID 19 cases in the world. It shows data according to the country or area selected by the user. The site follows a simple user interface which provides data and information to its user about the locations of the people affected by Coronavirus all over the world.
With the help of a layout of the world map, the website allows its user to zoom in and see the location of the nearest area that is affected by Coronavirus. It also has a live location tracker, with the help of which a user can track his distance from the nearest COVID-19 confirmed case in any country.
With the help of graphs displayed on the website, it enables its users to see for themselves the data of recovered, deceased and active cases of Coronavirus. Another graph presents to its user a bar graph that gives information on age demography for confirmed cases in the particular country they have selected at the top of the page or the country they want to get data about. The website also provides a state-wise statistics of any country and displays the name of the state and the number of confirmed cases, recovered cases, and deceased people.
The site picks information from Johns Hopkins University, MOHFW & crowd-sourced with verification. The website also states that “Realtime data from credible sources linked below. Numbers might take time to reflect on the MOHFW website.
