Today, I am proud to release my latest web app and project: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Live Monitor, your hub for news and information on the Coronavirus outbreak. The code can be found on the GitHub repo.
Go check it out!
The site is split into three key sections, each with latest information on the virus.
The stats section includes a total case count, as well as total deaths and recoveries and their percentages within the total case count.
The WHO press releases and health resources section includes a video of the latest WHO press conference about the virus and links to latest situation reports and WHO news, as well as various links to health resources such as the NHS (U.K.) and the CDC (U.S.A.).
Finally, the latest news section includes news articles about the virus from a vast array of news sources. News on the virus is also sorted into country based the user's IP address, allowing for users to read news in their own language, localized for their area.
I built it pretty quickly, in around 2-3 days, and I focused a lot on making it clean, effective, and easy to use. The main goal was to put all necessary information about the outbreak in one place.
If you'd like to read more about the technical details of this, I've written a more detailed post on my personal website.
Feel free to leave any feedback about this project in the comments, and I hope you take a look at the site if you have a chance.
Thanks for scrolling.
