With the recent resurges in COVID activity, it has become apparent that many people do not understand the extreme growth rate of this pandemic. We created this app to notify people of the status of COVID-19 in their area, so that they know and feel acutely the presence and danger of the pandemic.
What it does
Shows you data about COVID cases in your state, and analyses whether the growth is exponential or not, to allow people to perform a better risk assesment of venturing outside.
How we built it
Using React.js, a framework for web apps.
Challenges we ran into
Analysis of the data.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The mathematical model used to determine whether case rate growth is exponential or not.
What we learned
What's next for Covid-tracker
Stats on specific counties and cities, more robust analysis of rates of growth and the inferred risks.
