Abstract


The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19, discovered in late 2019, being continued to spread across regions worldwide, has resulted in 1,914,916 “confirmed” cases with up to 123,010 deaths, as in situation report –85 by World Health Organization (WHO). Most of the developed disease monitoring and tracking tools currently available only present the reported cases up to country-level and not detail down to provincial- or state-, city- level within the countries. This is insignificant for supporting activities in quickly reducing and preventing the spread of the disease within a certain country because further detail potential infectious locations are not provided for people to avoid traveling or passing by there. Thus, this work presents an open toolbox for generating map of actively “Confirmed” cases in a country, i.e., Vietnam, given a dataset containing their statuses and current locations, detail down to provincial-or state-, city-level. The newly released algorithm reduced approximately 24.41% of processing time of the preceding one. In addition, the algorithm can be easily extended for supporting other countries given suitable datasets.
