GOOGLE has launched a mobility report to track the county-by-county responses to the government measures on social distancing.

The data, which starts February 16, 2020 to Match 29, shows a massive reduction in movement across Wiltshire as people stay home to fight coronavirus.

Regular reports will be issued by the tech giant showing how travel to shops, pharmacies, train stations, parks and offices has changed since the outbreak of coronavirus.

The biggest decrease is an 84 per cent reduction in movement to shops, as all non-essential shops have now closed their doors.

Almost all other areas saw a decrease in travel including supermarkets and pharmacies by 45 per cent, parks by 56 per cent, train stations by 70 per cent and places of work by 54 per cent.

However, there has been a 15 per cent increase in movement within residential areas.

Google hopes that the tool will help public health official understand how social-distancing measures are working.

The Google blogpost on the report said: “As global communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increasing emphasis on public health strategies, like social distancing measures, to slow the rate of transmission.

“Starting today we’re publishing an early release of our COVID-19 Community Mobility Reports to provide insights into what has changed in response to work from home, shelter in place, and other policies aimed at flattening the curve of this pandemic.”

Google also said that it will be “adhering to our stringent privacy protocols and policies”.
