Ward Discovery

What do I want to build?
I'd be building a Web App that connects hospitals that are in need of isolation wards with the providers. Think of it as an Airbnb for Isolation wards.

There might be some other hospitals, stadiums, and other public places closed down due to COVID-19. In the midst of this pandemic, the public places which are willing to set up beds/offer spaces as additional isolation wards would be able to aid the patients' need.


This would serve as a life-saver for infected patients to ensure a smooth quarantine process.

Completed:
1. Ward Skeers & Provider Authentication using AWS DynamoDB
2. Ward ID generation and basic layout for available wards

How I built it (what's the stack? did I run into issues or discover something new along the way?
Technologies would include Flask, MongoDB, HTML, CSS.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk for deployment.

Additional Resources/Info
