We got inspired by the lack of precision of COVID case numbers. We thought it was important to know how many people are really infected.

What it does

Our app will track cases using NLP on social media posts.

How I built it

we are still building it, but we are using python.

Challenges I ran into

Building the model is quite challenging.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We managed to scrape tweets about COVID19 and map them with plotly.

What I learned

How to make interactive maps with python, how to scrape tweets, and a lot about machine learning and clustering

What's next for COVIDTracker

We will continue to work on algorithms :-)
