What you need to know

  • Bing has a new coronavirus dashboard to help you keep track of the spread of coronavirus.
  • You can use the dashboard to check specific regions, countries, and states.
  • The dashboard gets its information from several organizations, including the CDC, WHO, and ECDC.

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.

  • Remind me again, was it Bing, or Covid-19 that was the virus?
  • It is you
  • Haha nice one
  • The count is questionable. According to the John Hopkins site, NH has 13 cases. Bing says 7.
  • You can track it, but you almost certainly shouldn't. WHO are warning against spending too much time reading about it as it leads to its own health issues.
  • Virginia has disappeared from the list of states.
  • Handy tool, but the data is not up to date. Johns Hopkins has a great map. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd4029942...
  • Must be an update timing issue. Numbers are looking more accurate now
  • Bing is reporting Zero cases in USA....This is pathetic....Nice dashboard but showing zero cases for USA is just outright wrong. "Click on United States to see the issue"
