Bing has a new dashboard that makes it easy to track the coronavirus (COVID-19). You can use the dashboard to view information based on region, country, and U.S. state. The tool shows the number of active cases, recovered cases, and fatal cases within an area, including a global count. The dashboard gets its information from several organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
In addition to showing the number of cases of coronavirus, the tool shows news stories related to the pandemic. The news stories shown are localized to the region that you're currently viewing. Within the U.S. section of the dashboard, you can select individual states. Other countries don't seem to have any regional sub-sections.
Bing's coronavirus dashboard scales well on mobile devices, so it's a convenient tool to stay up to date. It also updates frequently to show the latest informatin. To access the dashboard, you need to go to www.bing.com/covid. Searching for "coronavirus" or "COVID-19" shows you the normal search results through Bing, so you'll have to use the correct URL to see the dashboard.
