Corona (Covid19) has taken over the world and it also has made its way to my home country Sri Lanka. We are in a curfew till Tuesday (24/03/2020) and it is expected to extended. Our security forces, medical staff are doing there best but as of writing this the no of cases reported hasn't stopped completely and also it hasn't blown out of control either. So we can say we are safe for now as long as we maintain social distancing and good personal hygiene.
In a time like this, it is particularly important to keep track of the Corona virus outbreak situation. So to ease thing I made a small DIY project which uses an API provided by the official Sri Lankan Health Promotion Bureau to show vital statistics. This is a need of the hour as it makes easy for myself and my wife to keep track of things easily. This is a self contained IOT project which only requires a power source or battery which can input 5v. It will connect to WiFi router and pull data. It can be easily modified to pull and display any country's data with minor modifications so it will be useful for many.
