COVID-19 TRACKER - My Contribution So Far!

COVID-19 TRACKER is a website I decided to start building a couple of weeks ago to track the statistics of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic world wide.

This is my little contribution when the world came together remotely as one against this plague that is ravaging mankind.

Why I built it?

Information is said to bring light. If people are informed, they know what steps to take next - either to be more careful or to be less tensed (we are really looking forward to this).


COVID-19 TRACKER is made in such a way that it is easy to navigate even for a non-techie.

It is made with 3 colors basically - white, black and red. These colors symbolizes death in some places, life in other places and love in most placs. The idea is that even though there is danger of death at this time, we can look forward with hope for life as we stand together in love.

Why You should check it out and share?

It is built with all simplicity in mind and updated every 15 minutes which means you do not miss out on any news around the world.

Features of the website

The website is made up of 4 features as at the time of this report:

  1. Global Report
  2. Countries Report
  3. World Most Trending News
  4. Search Box

I am expressing appreciation to the following open source tools and of course, the whole DEV Community.


Hopefully, there will be more improvements on the website in the future. I am open to ideas in the comment section.

Thank you for checking out my project😊

The most challenging thing was the design. Thinking of how to present information in the best way possible.

Once I got a design thought out, implementing the design was not much of a task.
