There are at least 3,244 confirmed cases of Novel Coronavirus in the US and at least 61 deaths. “Lots of Bing folks worked (from home) this past week to create a mapping and authoritative news resource for COVID19 info,” said Michael Schechter, General Manager for Bing Growth and Distribution at Microsoft in a ZDNet report on Sunday.

The site features an interactive map that allows visitors to click to see country-specific information. This includes a number of cases and related articles from various publishers. The data on the website is aggregated from sources like the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Microsoft also announced the website two days after US President Donald Trump said that Google has begun working on the COVID-19-related portal for US citizens. Meanwhile, Google’s website is being built by Verily, a subsidiary of Alphabet focused on healthcare services.

“More than 1,700 engineers are currently working on the site”, said Trump during a press briefing last week. The tool will help people concerned about their COVID-19 infections. It will guide them into testing sites based on guidance from public health officials and test availability.

While there was initially some confusion on Google’s coronavirus portal it was later announced that it is “partnering with the US Government in developing a nationwide website that includes information about COVID-19 symptoms, risk, and testing information.”
