Well, here we are – stuck in our homes, having to readjust our lifestyles while still trying to maintain a certain degree of psychological and physical balance in the process of doing so. It really seems like the world has come to a halt during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, and for better or for worse, it’s a sacrifice that we all must take part in.
The situation is far from ideal, and several countries are still in it for the worst. Thankfully, this pandemic has come at a time when keeping track of official data is extremely easy thanks to the Internet and our smart devices.
For most of us, the web browser is our best and most reliable friend when it comes to tracking the Coronavirus outbreak statistics. However, if you feel like paying a small fee, you can track the statistics of the pandemic just as reliable directly from the taskbar with the help of a little app called Covid.
The main selling point of this app is its convenience. Once installed, you’re always one click away from knowing the latest statistics from all over the world or from specific countries. There are other advantages as well. For example, the app is quite stylish, easy-to-use, and looks perfectly at home on Windows 10.
While most similar apps of this sort focus on the raw numbers, Covid has an ace up its sleeve as it also provides you with the latest Coronavirus news from a variety of trustworthy sources.
You can view the total number of world-wide infections, deaths, and recoveries for the current day. Of course, as mentioned before, you can also view the data for individual countries (which have to be added to the app’s menu manually from the “Add Favorite Countries” section). The only slight problem with this is that the app does not provide you with a quick way of searching for a specific country (for example, there’s no option to even sort them alphabetically).
You’re also provided with a few useful graphs that can help you assess the epidemic’s evolution during certain periods of time. Unfortunately, this option is only available for world-wide statistics and not country-specific ones.
There’s no doubt that Covid is a really nice application. It looks good, it runs at it should, it’s easy to use and quite unobtrusive, it provides enough raw data to keep its users informed about the situation, and it also provides the latest Coronavirus news.
You can buy the app and get a lifetime license, but to be honest, we hope that the Coronavirus situation will start to turn around for the better as soon as possible.
