COVID-19 is a global emergency and the fight against it requires a joint effort. We at AnyChart cannot stay aside, too. With a lot of pandemic data out there, from numerous sources and with constant updates, it’s difficult to keep up with how the situation unfolds, let alone making sense of all relevant information in due course. But this is exactly where we can help, with our established charting solutions that can visualize any data on the fly.
Developed as a not-for-profit initiative by Diffco, a top Silicon Valley app development company, StopCorona is designed to bring transparency to the pandemic situation worldwide. To achieve that, it collects COVID-19 statistics from more than 20 reliable public open data sources, including WHO, CDC, ECDC, CCDC, and NHC to name a few. Now this enormous (and ever-expanding) set of coronavirus data is graphically represented in an analyst-friendly interface powered by AnyChart JS Charts.
As a global leader of data visualization and reporting tools, we at AnyChart were more than happy to support StopCorona by letting them use our award-winning JS charting library absolutely free, under a full-featured non-profit license.

About StopCorona COVID Tracker
StopCorona is a COVID tracking project aimed to provide up-to-date statistics about the novel coronavirus outbreak, including confirmed cases, deaths, and other relevant numbers. Putting together raw data from a variety of official public sources, it arranges all COVID-19 information in a user-friendly interface to allow for convenient analysis of global, regional, and local trends and figures.
Updated every half hour, an interactive dashboard shows the latest global COVID statistics at a glance. A live map enables an intuitive spatial outlook of how the virus spreads. Charts – visualized using AnyChart – provide data-driven insight into how the situation changes over time. You can hover and drill down for an in-depth view of what has been going on across the globe with the current pandemic.
Next in the roadmap of the StopCorona COVID tracker is the release of dedicated web and mobile (Android) applications. The apps will feature personalization, helping users to keep an eye on their ‘favorite’ areas. For instance, you will be able to turn on notifications to get alerts on new confirmed cases for a specific location (tracking a country, a city, or a district), daily COVID-19 trends, and more.
COVID-19 Advanced Data Insights
For advanced insights, StopCorona has included additional resources where you can find even more visualizations surrounding COVID-19 data.
There are interactive multi-line charts, powered by AnyChart, that compare how the number of confirmed cases and deaths has changed over time across different countries, and other visualizations, such as an animated map of the U.S. cases since April 1, and (links to) both Google’s Community Mobile Reports and Nextstrain’s genomic epidemiology graphics.
In development is a chart showing the impact of the pandemic circumstances on the performance of stock market indices.
