This is part of the, Beyond-EO Center of Excellence of the National Obsservatry of Athens, wider initiative to deliver reliable and timely reporting to the general public at this critical time.
The WebGIS platform is updated on a daily basis and provides robust and accurate information about the Covid-19 spread worldwide by producing up to date statistics and graphs aiming to depict the impact of the disease at global and national level. However, in the case of Greece, the platform allows us to have more fine grained insights reaching a deeper level (NUT3 and municipality).
The dashboard pulls data from official sources, specifically, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)., the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, the World Health Organisation (WHO) , as well as the Worldometers statistical website
To complement and enhance the existing domains of knowledge on the COVID-19 impact, authorized users can gain access to official Health Authorities, Civil Protection Organisations, and Municipality/Regional Authorities and easily upload additional data on a larger topographic scale such as municipality level.
COVID-19 outbreak is undoubtable the defining global health crisis of our time. Our utmost priority with our new data platform is to illuminate our current knowledge and understanding, to a greater extent and decode the connection that might exist between the climate and environmental essential parameters.
The live dashboard pulls data from official sources, specifically, the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) as well as the HNPHO (Hellenic National Public Health Organization)- and the media.

Based on extensive analyses of the data, until (7/4/2020), numbers vary widely from country to country. For instance, in relation to confirmed cases and fatalities, the number of deaths per 1.000.000 population remains high for countries such as Italy (274 deaths/per 1M population), Spain (279 deaths/per 1M population) and France (133 deaths/per 1M population). We then have, Switzerland (68 deaths/per 1M population), United Kingdom (81 deaths/per 1M population and United States (34 deaths/per 1M population). Greece’s rate remains in minimum level (7 deaths/per 1M population) along with Germany (19 deaths/per 1M population) and now with China, which significantly decreased its rate to 2 deaths/per 1M population, a positive trend that signals progress in COVID-19 fight. It is now more obvious that due to the fact that the government of Greece took precautionary emergency measures to limit the spread of coronavirus, the country is still below global average of ~5.6% in terms of confirmed infections and fatalities. Furthermore, compared to other countries, the numbers of deaths per day (per 1.000.000 population) are impressively low indicating a positive result with the flattening of the relevant curve.
