In most African/Asian countries, most citizens tends not to get updates about the global covid-19 pandemic. One of the reasons being the lack of steady internet connection.
The reports in Nigeria for example are updated every night around 8:00pm GMT and when this happens, it's only published on the Nigeria Center For Disease Control (NCDC) social handles. So if you have no access to the internet during this time, you'll be in the dark 🧟.
This was why we'd brainstormed to create a solution for solving this, and then we came up with Covid-19 Reports 💡
Covid-19 Reports helps you channel your super power of getting the latest information about the covid-19 pandemic even when you're offline.
You'll only need to access the web app once and prompted to add your mobile number in order to get the updates. After this you'll get all the updates you need everyday (automatically) 🎉
Visiting the app automatically detect your location (country precisely) and you'll only get reports based on this side, this was implemented so as not to bore 😴 you with large statistical data.
Another awesome feature is performing self test right on your mobile phone. Since the covid-19 symptoms are known, we'd decided to automate self test without even having to visit the hospital.
