Anyone else worked on a covid19-related project?

The moment the pandemic started I got so overwhelmed by having to compute the consequences of such an unprecedented situation that I couldn't focus on my day job and felt like I had to focus on doing something related to covid19. It helped and I learned a lot in the process.

I ended up making a data visualization page in TypeScript and React that allows for comparing countries' infection trajectories and visualizes the cases and deaths on a simple map. I called it COVID19.PINK because the color domains were almost the only ones available for covid19

It's open-source if you want to check out the details.

Did you build anything related to the coronavirus? What was your motivation? I'd love to see your projects.

Yes some health departments are but could be more. Tracing contacts still involved too much manual work.

I made a country-comparison one with a map and charts as a way to start learning some D3 last spring - I blogged about it here.
You can view it live, but the functionality no longer works for US state-level data on the bar charts, since they rate-limited the API and I wasn't ready to pay for a subscription!

Nice! Thanks for sharing <3

Oh, yes I've spent quite some time myself having to adjust to the data source but was lucky enough to choose one that is free and still updated (including state-level data for the US)

When it all started, i saw everyone made dashboards. I wanted to make something that showed the real magnitude of how huge the nasty thing was. Check it out: hedgy134117.github.io/covid19-refe...

Oh, nice! I love the simplicity.

I had the same feeling about everyone making dashboards but I also didn't like most of them back in April and wanted to see if I can do better

I made a hobby project to learn how to make interactive maps, and ended up making this.

I created desktop and android application to check stats for COVID-19.
Here's the github links:

I built it because the local newspapers' data tracking pages all use statewide data, but the city reopening phases are based on Chicago city data.

Nice. We could use something like this in Copenhagen.

I built this : covid-19-c69ff.web.app/ in April because I learnt angular 9 newly and wanted to test my skills over a weekend
