Inspiration

As a normal person I also searched about COVID-19 when it was just in some countries, but couldn't find a proper website that gets me all the info about it. So, I decided to make one that has all the latest information about the current pandemic and precautions.

What it does

This website helps people to find the screening tool, latest news and statistics of countries, preventive measures, some useful videos on masks and sanitization. This will help people to be more clear about the prevention of Coronavirus and will help in clearing the doubts of people.

How I built it

I built this website by using HTML-5, Javascript, Bootstrap and CSS which is fully responsive for all platforms (Windows, Android or MacOS) so you won't ever miss anything!

I made sure that it should be as fast, smooth and as much informational as it can be.

Challenges I ran into

I faced some issues understanding how Javascript works, but somehow managed to make it work. Another challenge that i faced was with Coronavirus Stats Tracker, most of the trackers were making website slow if embedded but after digging deep, finally found a good website which works smoothly with the website.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Despite the technical challenges, lack of sleep, and occasional procastination, i am very proud to complete the functionality and the UI design of the website in 48 hours. It was challenging but fun at the same time to learn something new.

What I learned

This hackathon gave me an opportunity to get the experience of using web technologies and helped me gain confidence in my skills. It's always good to have new ideas that will help people and in such short time ideas turn out to be really good! It was a great experience which helped me boost my skills.

What's next for CovidSafety

In the near future, i want to expand the functionality of the website by adding an inbuilt news section, a chatbot and a status updater based on their location. Also, accounts functionality that will help people save their location and bookmark their favorite videos, news articles and also chat with random strangers all over the web!
