Soon we will be able to visualize the COVID incidence in Google Maps. Thanks to this information we can inform ourselves about the cases of Coronavirus, in an area, to be able to make more informed decisions about where to go and what to do.
We all know how important it is to know, at all times, how the incidence of Covid-19 in the world and, above all, in the areas where we live or where we are going to travel. Google maps, in the next few days, it will launch a new layer in which we can see that information.
We can precisely see the average number of cases of COVID of the last seven days for every 100,000 people, in the area we focus on from Google Maps. This is something very interesting for everyone to know. It will help us make decisions about whether or not to go to certain areas with a high incidence of cases.
How can we see the incidence of COVID on Google Maps ?:
As we have said, this week it will begin to be implemented worldwide, both in Android like in iOS, and we can access it in the following way:
- We open the Google Maps app.
- We click on the «Layers» button, which appears in the upper right part and is characterized by a kind of two superimposed squares.
- This is where the option will appear, as it appears in the image that heads this news.
Once we activate it, we can go by consulting areas through the tactile navigation of the maps of this great application.
The data that appears in this new layer comes from multiple authoritative sources such as Johns Hopkins, New York Times and Wikipedia. These sources obtain data from public health organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), government ministries of health, along with state and local health agencies and hospitals.
While getting around is very tricky these days, we expect these Google maps help you get where you want to go, as safely and efficiently as possible.
