A map created by Microsoft’s Bing team in March gives people an easy way to observe the spread of COVID-19.

The interactive map gives up-to-date information about confirmed cases worldwide and breaks down the number of active, recovered, and fatal cases by country and by US state.

You can click on any country or state to find related articles for that region, as well as nearby medical centres and testing locations.

The map also gives users charts and graphs to see the trends in COVID-19 cases over time.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases appears to be updated regularly; the tool draws data from sources including the World Health Organisation, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the US CDC.

Here’s how to use Microsoft’s new interactive coronavirus map.
