It’s hard to use social media or watch the news these days without hearing about coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). While some of it verges on unnecessary panic, there is reason to keep informed, especially with the amount of data and technology we have today.
The folks at Johns Hopkins created an interactive web-based dashboard that collects data from WHO, CDC, and China CDS to “visualize and track the reported cases on a daily timescale.” The team at Johns Hopkins state that the purpose of the tracker is “… to provide the public with an understanding of the outbreak situation as it unfolds, with transparent data sources.”
The website can be found at gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard and runs in your browser, including the new Microsoft Edge.

If you want to make the process simple, install the tracker as an app and pin it to your taskbar or Start menu. Doing so lets you run the tracker as a standalone app, which is much easier and useful than running in a tab. To do so, follow these steps:
Select the browser menu ‘…’ in the upper right corner in Edge.
Navigate to Apps, and select Install this site as an app.
