Microsoft has developed a new tool to map the spread of Covid-19 around the globe.
The tool (called Covid-19 Tracker) was built by the team behind Bing, the search engine Microsoft developed to challenge Google, and uses the latest statistics from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
The tracker shows up-to-date figures on deaths and total confirmed cases plus the number of recovered people, worldwide as well as by country.
The tracker is available on desktop and mobile and users can navigate the map to find localised information.
Selecting a city will bring up the most current figures as well as news articles from trustworthy sources, as suggested by Bing.
The number of confirmed cases continues to rise sharply around the world, with Europe now the epicentre of the viral infection.
The online tracker shows that China still has the most cases, followed by Italy, Iran, Spain, South Korea, Germany, France, the US, Switzerland and the UK.
You can use the tool as a reliable way to stay updated on Covid-19
