Aspectum, the US company specializing in location intelligence, expresses its fullest empathy towards people affected by coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and declares its commitment to contribute to the crisis resolution. Therefore, starting from March 13, the company provides free access to its cloud-based GIS platform and analytical services to all organizations, entities, and individuals working with health care projects.
Members of medical supply chains, NGOs, government bodies, and mass media may apply this GIS map to observe the situation with coronavirus in different regions. With the help of the analytical services by Aspectum, organizations can analyze data about the infected areas and access a helicopter view to forecast and reduce the risks of spreading the virus to the neighboring territories. This solution also tracks air traffic in order to detect the spread of infection at both national and international levels.
GIS for the government emerges an efficient tool for establishing and tracing the provision of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. The mapping analysis enables health care professionals, as well as volunteers, to react promptly and provide required drugs and other therapeutic agents to the patients with different risks of infection. It, in turn, supports reasonable means distribution and constrains the rise of new cases.

It offers digital solutions for improved data visualization through geographic information systems. Aspectum partners with leading companies across industries in North America and Europe for enhanced mapping that makes data more available and valuable.
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the new coronavirus discovered in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. People affected typically show flu-like symptoms that include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, sometimes leading to severe consequences including pneumonia, multi-organ failure, and death. The virus spreads from one person to others via respiratory droplets produced in the airways, e.g. during coughing.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11. As of March 12, the number of people diagnosed with the disease amounts to 126,000 in more than 110 countries.
