Roylab Stats is streaming a live video on YouTube with real-time information on Covid-19 cases around the globe, including a live counter on confirmed cases, recovered cases, and total deaths.
The video’s description on YouTube said, “I started this live stream on January 26, and since January 30 I have been streaming this without stopping. Many people are worried about the coronavirus spreading. For anyone that wants to know the numbers and progression of the worldwide spread of this virus, I offer this live stream.”
“The purpose is not to instill fear or panic, nor is it to necessarily comfort; I just want to present the data to help inform the public of the current situation.
“At first, I tried to show only official data from governments without any manipulation. But many people wanted to apply an up-to-date format of data to stream. I added a procedure to manually manipulate data with my computer. After seeing the inflicted countries numbers had sharply increased, I realized that I could no longer keep up with new information from 100 countries.
“So I made another procedure which enables moderators to manipulate the numbers on screen from romote. Not only the moderators who willingly accepted the hard work, but also everyone that gave us reliable information were able to add streaming data.”
