I saw a couple of videos on youtube regarding hackathons, I searched for online hackathons and found this website, I saw this website last night and started my work today 6 hours before the deadline.

What it does

It shows the total deaths from covid 19 since the outbreak in almost every country on a map chart or you may say a geo chart.

How we built it

The data is coming from an API from RapidAPI, furthermore, I used bootstrap for styling.

Challenges we ran into

So, in the template I had a script tag that was calling the geo chart, I realized I can't use handlebars there cause it considers it as javascript so I consulted one of the student experts on discord and they helped me out with a different solution to initialize the data array outside of the template.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I'm happy that I can submit the project and also encountered all the errors.

What we learned

We learned that when you're determined to do something, the timespan doesn't matter at all.

What's next for COVID 19 | Total Deaths Countrywise

I can enhance by taking it to a separate domain and if I do so, I'll use node js with express to built a website which will be quite helpful.
