It seems like there are more and more cases of Covid-19 in New Zealand every day - and for a lot of people that can feel overwhelming or scary.
Thankfully, one smart Kiwi has created an interactive map that shows you exactly what the status of your area is in terms of confirmed cases.
Papamoa local, Andrew Jackson, sourced the information for the map straight from the government's official website covid19.govt.nz, so all the numbers are accurate.
As of 2pm, March 26 New Zealand has 262 confirmed cases and 27 people have recovered.
The map also shows the spread across age, gender and links to flights that people with Covid-19 took.
The site has reportedly received more than 300,000 hits over the last 48 hours, with many parents sharing it with their children to help them understand the virus.
Hopefully, the number of recovered will eventually out-weigh the number with the virus soon enough.
