NAPLES, Fla, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — HealthLynked (OTCQB: HLYK) is proud to announce the release of its latest version of its COVID-19 tracker, designed to provide users with the most up-to-date information as we continue to navigate the evolving landscape of the pandemic. Recognizing the mounting concerns about COVID-19 variants and the intersection with other viral illnesses such as RSV and flu, HealthLynked has reset its tracker starting from January 2023 to closely monitor potential new cases.
In the context of the pandemic’s evolution, it is vital to understand the distinctions between Variants of Concern (VOC) and Variants of Interest (VOI). VOCs are strains with characteristics like increased transmissibility and potential resistance to treatments or vaccines, making them a primary focus for global health organizations. In contrast, VOIs, while having genetic alterations, have not shown a widespread global impact but are closely monitored for their potential escalation in concern.
Features of the New Tracker
- Redesigned Home Screen: The revamped home screen provides a snapshot of active cases and deaths, both for the US and globally. Users can view this data in numerical and graphical formats.
- Flexible Timeframes: The data can be filtered over various periods – the last 7 days, 30 days, 3 months, or 1 year, offering a comprehensive view of the pandemic’s progression.
- Statewide and Global Mapping: Once the US is selected, users can delve into statistics for each state. Additionally, the map function allows users to visualize new COVID-19 cases around the world.
- Three New Sections:
- Latest News: Stay informed with the most recent developments.
- MedOfficeDirect Link: Purchase COVID-19 tests that can be conveniently shipped to your doorstep.
