COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2. Terms that are on almost everyone’s lips. Symbol of a pandemic that has come to change our lives and that makes headlines, headlines and news. No wonder the web is full of information about the disease. So much so, that it is increasingly common to see how authorities, agencies, media… offer information with the latest detailed data.
