In an effort to help you stay up-to-date on the COVID-19 pandemic, Bing has released features that help you discover comprehensive information on case locations
, infection prevention
, and more.
Simply search for “covid19”, “coronavirus information”, or a related term, and you’ll find a tally of the cases in your geographic region as well as an up-to-date summary of global cases. This information is aggregated across multiple sources such as the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and other authoritative sources. As the situation is changing rapidly, we’re refreshing the data multiple times per day, and show a timestamp for when we published the latest available data.
You can also click the “additional info” tab for links to reliable sources on relevant topics such as prevention, symptoms, and treatment. These views are currently live in the US and we plan to make them available in more countries soon.
You can also click on the expand button on the map or go to bing.com/covid
to see a full-page view of active cases, recovered cases, and deaths by country overlaid onto an interactive map of the world. We are working on providing a more granular view of data; currently, we have cases on a per-state view in the US and plan to have regional data for other countries soon. This page is available globally and on mobile via the Bing app and the mobile website.
In addition to the per-country data, you can click on a region to see links to top local news related to the coronavirus.
You can also see full-page coverage of coronavirus updates at Microsoft News
, which features dedicated global and local coverage of coronavirus news in 39 countries and all 50 US states
These features are just the beginning. We’re working hard to provide additional resources as the situation continues to evolve. If you have feedback, please click the ‘Feedback’ button at the bottom of the search results page.
Since the initial features announced above, we’ve released several more resources to help you continue to stay up to date on the coronavirus pandemic.
To allow you to stay informed of the situation near you, we’ve increased the data granularity on our map tracker to include county level data in the US, as well as regional level data in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China (Mainland), Columbia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Germany, Great Britain, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, and Spain, with more countries coming soon. To provide a view of how the cases are trending in a given area, we’ve also provided graphs of confirmed and fatal cases over time.
We’ve also expanded coverage of our answer on the results page, and it is now live in all English markets, as well as Spanish and Italian markets (ES & IT) markets.
Finally, now we’re providing local information on testing protocol and locations if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or think you have been exposed to it. Browse to your state and county on the COVID-19 tracker
, and you’ll see information on how to determine if you should get tested, as well as testing locations in the selected county and if you need an appointment for each location. This information is currently available in the most-affected US states, and we’re looking to expand coverage to other US states and other countries soon.
