Covid-19 from a spatial perspective

With the outbreak of the new coronavirus (Covid-19) in the early months of 2020, which began in Wuhan, China, and then spread rapidly to other parts of the world, the medical community began to understand how the disease spread. Due to the rapid change in this vital information that was relevant to human life, many ESRI users began to produce maps and panels to display information related to the new virus.

A research team at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland combined data from various official sources, such as the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, into a panel of locations from around the world where the disease is growing. Is displayed. The panel, which quickly became popular, has an interactive map showing the exact number of sufferers, deaths, and recovery in each location.

Other organizations have used spatial information systems to meet similar needs. The World Health Organization, which monitors all global health-related events, has set up a dedicated panel to show the definitive cases of Covid-19. Experts from China-based ESRI Geospatial Information Systems have also designed a panel that includes suspicious but unverified disease reports along with related news. Another interactive panel monitors outbreaks in Hong Kong up to the building level. The International Aviation Organization (ICAO) has also introduced a dynamic panel that compares normal air traffic to places where Covid-19 outbreaks occur.

Together, this data provides experts with an optimal picture of how the new Corona virus spreads instantly. This spatial perspective will be invaluable in the efforts made to manage the new coronary heart disease.
