The students of Mahindra Ecole Centrale College of Engineering, Hyderabad, have taken a big initiative to develop a live District-wise tracker for COVID-19 cases in India.
The tracker is a website and is developed under the guidance of its faculty. The website gets its information with data obtained from credible and reliable sources such as the Ministry of Health, Pharmaceutical Technology, and reputed news outlets, as claimed by the developers. A dedicated team of students has been assigned to pull out data from relevant sources and update the map on the tracker after thorough cross-checking and verification.
This is probably the only district-wise tracker in existence and will immensely help people who need to travel in the country and avoid virus-prone zones. The data can also help the authorities to mobilize resources more efficiently. Students who have developed this website are Raghav NS, Ananta Srikar, Rishab Ramanathan, Rohith Gilla, Anchit Sharma and V. Meghana Reddy, and under the guidance of Mahindra Ecole Centrale faculty Dr. Achal Agrawal, Dr. Bharghava Rajaram and Mr. Raj Narayanan.
