The coronavirus map in Brazil can be consulted on an online panel updated with Covid-19 cases by state. Developed by the Paraná startup SIGA, the system offers a more detailed overview of the country’s situation compared to international monitors, which, in general, separate confirmations by country only. The map considers official data released daily by the Ministry of Health, distributed according to status: suspected, confirmed and killed.

According to the creators, the initiative intends that Brazilians feel more encouraged to do their part in fighting the pandemic by seeing the numbers in their locality. The Covid-19 tracker is built primarily with open source map libraries, contains no ads and has free access, and does not require any registration.

When opening the panel, available on the website www.sigageomarketing.com.br/coronavirus/, the user has access to an interactive map and a graphic on the right side that helps to understand the evolution of the epidemic in Brazil. Both on it and on the maps, suspected cases are marked in yellow, confirmed cases in red and deaths in black. The website also shows the total by situation.

According to the geographers responsible for the project, the panel takes into account the consolidated balance sheet released by the Ministry of Health at the end of the day, which may delay the update of the figures. At the end of the story, the site still did not show, for example, the first case of Covid-19 in the state of Pará confirmed by the state Department of Health.
