Inspiration

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

Start early.

What's next for Covid-tracker

Stats on specific counties and cities, more robust analysis of rates of growth and the inferred risks.
