The Swedish company Safeture has launched openupforbusiness.com website to provide people with free access to accurate and real-time information on virus restrictions so they can plan their next business or family trip. It is the first interactive mapping tool to help viewers see which Covid-19 restrictions apply to specific countries and is available to embed on other sites free of charge.
The map includes information about area lockdowns, quarantine measures, flight restrictions, school closures, and links to more information. The data is continuously monitored and updated by Safeture analysis team, a critical step since each day, there are enough updates to fill a 1,000-page book, equivalent to Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
“The more people that get access to this information to make the right decisions, the faster the economy can begin to recover. Let us open up for business”, says Magnus Hultman, CEO of Safeture.
“We have access to a ton of critical data, so it makes sense for us to package it together and make it free to the world. Countries are slowly beginning to ease restrictions, so it is critical businesses. It was important for us to provide this interactive map for free and make the coding available for embedding on other sites to help the world get back on its feet and open up for business.
“We now have a full global pandemic forcing the world into lockdown. But each country and even regions have their approach to lockdown restrictions, making it difficult to keep track of the range of rules. Slowly, the world is easing its restrictions, and our free tool gathers all the available restrictions data from around the world and collects it all on one interactive map, which is the first of its kind.”
According to the OECD, the global economy misses out on around USD25 billion if the economic output decreases ten per cent each day under the current Covid-19 restrictions.
