Google Maps is one of the essential applications to have on smartphones if you want to get from point A to point B without major complications. You will now be able to “browse” the service with information about Covid-19.
Starting this week, Google Maps will introduce a tool that promises to show critical information about Covid-19 cases in a given area. That way you can make informed decisions about where to go and what to do.
How will it work:
According to Google itself it shows us in images, as soon as we open Google Maps, just click on the layers button and choose the option “Covid-19 Info”. There you will see various information.
New cases of Covid-19 will be shown, on average, in the last seven days by 100,000 people in the area of the map you are viewing. And it will also be shown whether the trend of the cases is up or down.
The color code used promises to help you distinguish the density of cases in a given area. And Google promises that the data will be shown in the 220 countries and territories that Google Maps supports.
Data from specific areas such as district or city will be displayed, but only when available. The feature will reach Android and iOS users later this week.
