Mr.SR SANKAR NARAYANAN, III Year CSE student of Meenakshi Sundararajan Engineering College has developed a web application Corneese for tracking COVID-19.
Corneese: COVID-19 Tracker
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This disease was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and it has spread globally. World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. As per recent data, more than a million cases have been reported in about 200 countries and territories. More than 300,000 people have recovered but resulting in more than 80,000 deaths. In order to track the updates of COVID-19, a web application named Corneese is developed. Corneese provides the updates of COVID-19 around the world. This especially focuses on India. It provides the updates on different states and districts. It also traces COVID-19 status in other countries along with the statistics like cases/million, deaths/million. It has statistics, which represents rate, average along with some plots and charts for India and Tamil Nadu. It also provides information on hospitals and the available number of beds in urban and rural areas in various states. Further it has COVID-19 symptoms test page, which shows the level of risk of the individual based on the parameters entered. The overall implementation is based on Node.js and Express.js which continuously traces the REST API and gives the output in the form of a table. Node.js is used as a server, as it is scalable and has a reasonable latency. Python is used for plotting and data analysis. The plotting is done in matplotlib in Python. In future, there will be updates with a prediction system which can predict the number of cases on nth day in India. This prediction will be based on both linear and logarithm regression using Support Vector Machine.
