In addition to the Corona tracker app there are also good online overviews that you can use to monitor the spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). In addition to simple corona maps on which the infection numbers hover over countries and regions, there are also very good statistics. For example, one or the other coronavirus card also shows the number of people recovered. In addition, there is a listing of the cases per 100.000 inhabitants, which also put the individual numbers in relation to each other. So if you always want to be up-to-date, you will find the probably best statistics, tickers and coronavirus maps at a glance here.
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) is an independent higher federal authority that deals with infectious diseases as well as non-communicable diseases. The RKI is subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Health and provides important information about diseases, their prevention and control. For the population in Germany, the RKI website offers current and important information on the coronavirus on various sub-pages. Be like that auf dieser seite the number of cases in the 16 federal states is shown - in addition to the total number, the increase on the previous day and the number of deaths, the ratio x: 100.000 is also shown. A graphic preparation with a map of Germany, cases in diagrams, the breakdown by districts and other data can be found on the COVID-19 dashboard.
The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), which is repeatedly cited as a reliable source, has put a similar dashboard online. On the interactive map, the worldwide cases are broken down by country and US state. There are overviews of infected, death and recovery numbers. In addition, the global increase is displayed as a graph in a diagram. This is currently quite steep, so it looks as if some measures are still needed worldwide over a long time to bring about a decline in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The described corona card of the JHU can be found with this link.
The Berliner Morgenpost offers a map for Germany, Europe and the world that is not surrounded by so many numbers and graphs. The dots above the individual states and federal states show the extent of the number of infections in red, the number of recoveries in green and the number of deceased in black. There is also a breakdown in a diagram and by state in a table. For the individual districts of Berlin you will find a single map further down on the page. In addition, under the main map there is a link to the latest article in the newspaper, which deals with the subject of coronavirus and the fight against pandemics. You come to the map using this link. The site can also be used mobile on the iPhone and iPad.
You will find less a map, but rather a breakdown of worldwide data on the Worldometers website. There, the open cases are divided into mild and severe or critical courses. In addition, the closed cases are broken down into recovery and deaths. There are also graphs that show the number of infections and deaths over time. Further down on the page there is a table that shows the number of coronavirus cases (Total Cases), the new corona infections (New Cases), the above-mentioned breakdown and the ratio of x to 1 million for each country. In addition, the date of the first reported case is shown for each country - for Germany this would be January 26, 2020.
You are not only up to date with bare figures and statistics as well as the links from the Berliner Morgenpost, but also with the live ticker of the world. There you will find an overview of the current reports, which are held nationally and internationally. You will find new regulations from the federal government or the federal states, information from the RKI and Charité, statements from the Ministry of Health and so on. You can also follow the developments in other countries such as France, Italy, Spain, the USA and so on with the help of corresponding reports. You should access this offer as well as the reports from other media houses and above all from the authorities and research centers more than just the maps and statistics. Because there you will find out everything about regulations, protective measures and so on.
While it is important to keep up to date, there is no point in checking each and every one of the sources listed every five minutes. Whether it's a coronavirus live ticker, RKI dashboard or JHU card - don't try to stress yourself with a flood of horror reports. Take the best possible protective measures for yourself and your relatives, take the regulations on prohibition of contact, distance and stay at home seriously and use the time as positively and productively as you can. That's probably the best thing about the current crisis.
