You can simply click on the country while the globe rotates slowly and a pop-up will show you the details. Moreover, the website is developed in an interactive way that makes it even more interesting. Just with the help of few touches on your smartphone screen you can turn the globe around and click on the map to check the status.
The goal of this project is to provide a simple, interactive way to visualize the impact of COVID-19. The students mention on the website itself, “We wanted people to be able to see this as something that brings us all together. It’s not one country or another country; it’s one planet – and this is what our planet looks like today.”
