There are now more than 900,000 confirmed cases of Coronavirus worldwide.
UP Resilience Institute in collaboration with UP Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (NOAH) has rolled out ‘encov.ph’. The site’s purpose is to in-depth data mapping of all ongoing COVID-19 developments in the country.
It starts off with the encov.ph main dashboard highlighting the recent numerical data regarding the virus. It includes death tolls, recoveries, cases by age group/gender, and the total case overview since the virus began to spread in the Philippines last January 30.
There’s also the online symptom checker ‘ISKOnsult’ in case users are experiencing symptoms but don’t want to risk visiting the hospital. The e-consultation comes with questions on contact history and when they first experience specific symptoms. The virus is found to have an incubation period of 2-14 days, so there may be some cases of those already contacting the virus showing symptoms.
Endcov.ph also holds a wide array of information regarding the virus, including nearby hospitals, in-depth information on 683 cases (out of 707 confirmed), and DOH health advisories and resources to further understand and prevent COVID-19.
The site can be a handy solution to prevent the downright deadly amount of fake news coming from this outbreak.
