Google is developing a new feature on Google Maps to explain Covid-19 case patterns in a region. Google claims that in Maps the layer COVID will help you decide better where you should go and what you should do.
You must tap on the layers button in the upper right corner when you open the Google Maps program. The layer will show you an average of 7 days of new cases for Covid-19 for every 100,000 people in the region of the Charts. Here you must tap the "InfoCovid-19."
In order to facilitate determining the dosing density of cases in a particular region, Google has added color codes. Google says all the countries sponsored by Google Maps will see trend case data. This data includes, where applicable, information from the state, county, and even city level.
Moreover, Google states that on Google Maps, the Covid-19 layer offers data from organizations like the Johns Hopkins, the New York Times, and Wikipedia, which receive their data from reputable sources, such as WHO and governments. Google noted that most of this data is already available in Google search and is now extending to Google Maps.
"More than one billion guests turn to Google Maps, particularly during the pandemic, to find vital information about how to get everywhere. Features such as common times and live occupancy, Covid-19 transit warnings, and COVID driving navigating control points were designed to help you stay safe while you're out, "Google said in a blog post.
The covid-19 layer will be released worldwide this week by Google Maps on Android and iOS.
