From December 2019, Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) rapidly spread from the city of Wuhan (Hubei Province) to all of China, which was exacerbated by mass population movements associated with the Chinese Spring Festival. To date, more than 80000 people have been infected, and more than 3000 have died. In addition, COVID-19 has already spread to 142 countries, such as Korea, Iran, and Italy. We have created a system to analyze and visualize the disease data in Hubei Province and the rest of China, to help decision makers and the public make rational decisions without requiring data analysis expertise.
