As Coronavirus continues to spread here in the United States and across the world, it is becoming more important to stay well-informed and get your news from trusted websites. Much like rival Google, Microsoft’s Bing has now stepped in to do its part. The search engine recently launched a new resource hub where you can go to get information about Coronavirus cases, as well as a visual look at how the virus has spread.

As is expected, the hub can be found by visiting Bing.com/Covid. From the main page, you’ll see a list of total confirmed cases worldwide listed from greatest to least and by country. The list is divided up into active, recovered, and fatal cases. Clicking a specific country or region on the map, meanwhile, will bring up news stories around Coronavirus from that specific area. You can also zoom in and out on the map for a closer look at where the virus has spread.

Data for Bing’s Covid Tracker is collected from various sources. The list includes the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and Wikipedia’s page for the Coronavirus Pandemic. Also included is theĀ  European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Coronavirus is dangerous and can be deadly. It is very important to make sure that you listen to all warnings and restrictions set forth by local authorities. Bing’s interactive Cornavirus resource hub is just one of many ways to stay well informed. If you’re based here in the United States, we’d like to remind you to visit CDC.GOV/Coronavirus for updated information on how you can protect both yourself, your family, and your neighbors from the virus. Stay safe out there, readers, and remember to wash your hands!
