The COVID-19 pandemic has generated and will continue to generate far-reaching changes in people’s lifestyles. After more than a month of quarantine in many countries of the world, with the aim of slowing down the rate of infections, the numbers continue to be alarming.
Access to truthful information about this case that affects us all is a very important factor to reduce uncertainty about what is happening and for this reason, we want to present you an application developed by Microsoft with the function of informing.
Its name is COVID 19 Tracker and it offers the possibility of obtaining real-time data on the number of deaths, infections and recovery cases around the world.
Monitor COVID-19 from Windows
We have previously discussed services of this type that can be accessed quickly from the browser and that contain very good information, such as the case of the site created by Johns Hopkins University. However, Microsoft’s COVID 19 Tracker is an application that we can install on Windows, making it excellent for any user who wants to always keep an eye on this data or needs a quick way to access it for study or even publication.
It should be noted that it is a free application and its data source is Bing, Microsoft’s search service. COVID 19 Tracker presents a very attractive interface, based on a world map where you can point to the country or city whose data you want to see and which will be fully displayed showing the active cases, recovered cases and the number of deaths caused by the disease.
Additionally, you will see graphics that represent the rate of spread of the virus in the city in question. Also, you will have the possibility to make comparisons between data from different countries, which is excellent for analysis.
The application also has a news section, which will allow you to keep up to date with all the news regarding the pandemic. In general, it is a fairly complete application, with reliable information and tools that will help you better understand the statistics and even analyze them.
