1. World Health Organization
The World Health Organization has created a platform to monitor the progress of coronaviruses in the world. The map points, with orange dots, to countries that have confirmed cases of COVID-19. The larger the size of the circumference, the greater the number of infected in the region.

In the left column, the tool reports the total number of victims, infected countries and confirmed cases around the globe. A graph shows the growth curve of infections and, on the right side, it is possible to check a ranking of the countries most affected by the pandemic. The website can be accessed at: https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/685d0ace521648f8a5beeeee1b9125cd

It is possible to monitor the progress of coronavirus cases in Brazil and worldwide with a tool (bing.com/covid) designed by Bing, a Microsoft search engine. Self-explanatory, the map looks very similar to the WHO. The difference is that, when clicking on a specific country, the tracker shows the total number of active, recovered and fatal cases. The panel also displays a list of news and videos related to the progress of the pandemic in that region.
3. Johns Hopkins University
Experts from the Center for Science and Systems Engineering at Johns Hopkins University in the United States have also developed a website to track the global progress of COVID-19. The data on the map is supplied in real time with information from the World Health Organization and from disease control centers in different countries, which makes the layout and operation of the platform very similar to that of the WHO tool.

The system uses red dots to indicate the locations where there are cases of coronavirus. To the left of the map, it is possible to see the total number of infected people and the number of confirmed cases by region. In the upper right corner, tables inform the number of fatal victims and patients recovered per country. There is also a graph that indicates the growth of Covid-19 on the globe.
The Base Lab is another site that provides the map of the coronavirus in the world. Dark red regions have the highest number of cases, while countries colored in lighter shades are the least affected by COVID-19. Above the map it is possible to check the total number of cases, deaths, affected countries and people recovered from the disease around the world. In the lower right corner, the tool allows you to restrict the map to the European continent and China, a feature that allows for more accurate monitoring.

The Base Lab panel is full of information. Users can also check graphs with the coronavirus growth curve by region and check countries with the highest percentage increase in the number of cases.
