Hack for good COVID-19 - Protect the society!

The first case of the new Coronavirus COVID-19 was recorded on 31 December in Wuhan, China (as per the report of WHO). Since then, COVID-19 has taken the shape of a pandemic and has impacted the entire world. IncubateIND joins hands with HERE Technologies and is asking developers across the board to help us create a platform to track the impact of COVID-19. This could be in the shape of a website, an app or any other solution which could help Government and Authorities to actively tackle the problem.

We expect the developers to come up with solutions by utilizing heatmaps, like geotagging high risk zones and marking them through heatmaps, or in other ways use clusters to markdown the fake news and its origin.

Create a solution to stop COVID-19.
