Inspiration

As an Australia resident, I wanted to see all the information regarding COVID-19 statistics/information for Australia. However, the information was spread everywhere and the government was not providing the statistics easy to understand.

Therefore, I decided to develop a dashboard that collects information from various sources and display on a single page with different graphs & news.

What it does

  1. Collect official statistics from the Australian Government Department of Health
  2. Collect unofficial statistics from Wikipedia, Worldometer, The Guardian and Johns Hopkins University
  3. Display community news from Reddit
  4. Display news from Google
  5. Provide traveler alert from smarttraveller.gov.au
  6. Provide flights tracker to search flights that carried confirmed cases
  7. Refresh dashboard every minute; so you don't need to press F5

How I built it

Using Node.js to scrape/parse information from various sources Using Vue.js to display statistics and graphs

Challenges I ran into

Parsing statistics from various sources Hard to find real-time statistics

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

With this dashboard, I wouldn't need to go to various sources or search for what is happening in Australia. I can provide easy and good information to Australian.

What I learned

Providing fast, reliable information is important in this kind of unprecedented time.

What's next for COVID-19 Australia Dashboard

Continue to provide information that people can understand easy
