Modhacks Hackathon— Coronavirus screening tool
This COVID-19 screening tool we made is a simple HTML web page that that opens in a flash in your web browser but doesn't require an internet connection. Upon opening, the screening tool will ask you nine questions about basic symptoms, and then will move on to questions about severe symptoms. If you have all nine of the basic symptoms, it will recommend you to get tested for the virus. If you have any of the severe symptoms, it'll tell you to get tested. This test will also give you information about the virus as well as trusted sources. Sources and our contact information are in the Works Cited section.
We realized that a lot of people didn't know the symptoms of the virus and whether they should get tested or not. Many didn't realize that they could have the virus and that they might have been putting people in danger.
What it does
It asks you a few questions and it determines whether you urgently need a test or not.
How we built it
We used Twine to create the structure of it and added html code to improve upon it.
Challenges we ran into
We're beginners, so we came into this with minimal html knowledge. It took a lot of googling to figure out how to do things, such as adding a background image.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Adding a background and learning how to use variables.
What we learned
How to use variables, how to use HTML syntax, how to format text, how to color text, etc.
What's next for Do I have COVID-19?
We don't know. We may put this on an actual website, but we may not. It was just something we did because we were bored in quarantine.
