Acoer builds Blockchain-Powered App to track Coronavirus

To continue keeping records of the Coronavirus outbreak, Acoer, a developer of blockchain-based apps, has developed an application to assist users to track the persistent outbreak.

With this application, healthcare experts and organizations can observe the outbreak update.

The application makes use of a HashLog data visualization engine to collect data about the Coronavirus outbreak and show information in real-time.

Following the Coronavirus Outbreak

One will wonder where the application gets its information from.

It uses data from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Furthermore, it enables users to view information such as demises, verified cases, and recoveries. Lists of trends over time are also contained, as well as sorting and filtering capabilities for interactive viewing.

According to Jim Nasr, CEO of Acoer, the goal is to make data collection automated and data visualization intuitive.

He said there is a heightening supply of data about the virus, but the data is not easy to visualize, consume, or extract in a simple way.

“Particularly with my own public health background and tenure at the CDC, we are also huge believers that supporting public health is an extremely crucial duty and it is our responsibility to innovate to improve it.”

The worldwide fear

Obviously, a lot of countries are afraid of the virus outbreak.

While governments are trying their best to reduce the spread, citizens themselves are also trying to put up measures by washing their hands frequently, practicing respiratory hygiene, maintaining social distancing among others.

Recently in Japan, the whole cruise ship was quarantined and 355 passengers and crew were verified to having the virus.

Throughout the world, there are over 69,000 confirmed cases.

Ian Lipkin, infectious disease expert noted that coronavirus is a new virus that not much is known about it, as such, everyone is concerned so it doesn’t develop into something even worse.

Presently, 29 countries have reported cases of Coronavirus and so far, more than 900 people who had the coronavirus have died.
