According to the creators, the data is reliable and taken every two minutes from the Worldometer, whose information is obtained from official bulletins and news around the planet. The platform numbers also serve as a basis for other maps of the new coronavirus, such as the one developed by the American university Johns Hopkins.

In a consultation held on the afternoon of last Monday (30), Covid Visualizer already brought the most up-to-date number of cases, killed and recovered by Covid-19 in Brazil, according to the Ministry of Health. The information bulletin on the website highlights the total number just below the name of the country, then dividing it by active (active), dead (deceased) and recovered (recovered). The map does not separate cases by states.
In addition to the total number of confirmations, killed and recovered worldwide and by country, it is possible to know the number of new infected and deceased people in the day in each place. By default, the number always takes into account the midnight GMT 0, equivalent to 9:00 pm in the Brasilia time zone.

Unlike other online measurement panels, which use 2D maps, Covid Visualizer features an informative terrestrial globe. The developers say the site is meant to make people see this as something that unites us. Not one country or another country; a planet – and what our planet looks like today.
In tests conducted by the TechTudo, the animation didn?t seem to impact Google Chrome?s performance on the computer. However, the platform went down for at least an entire day last Friday (27). The crash may have been caused by a large volume of hits: according to the creators, the site already reaches 60 million users.
