TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — New Taipei has launched a website that provides visualized information about COVID-19 hotspots and city resources for better disease management.
The website’s e-map allows users to access information about coronavirus hotspots, and the locations of rapid testing sites and disease control centers. It also shows real-time traffic updates, the status of ambulance and fire engine dispatches, and water and power outage information.
The graphic appears in three colors, indicating different risk levels for boroughs in each administrative district. Yellow means low risk, orange suggests medium risk, and purple refers to high-risk areas.
