Short description

Selftrace lets you track self-reported COVID-19/symptoms cases on a live map

Description

Selftrace is an open-source effort to create a live map that anonymously shows all users who self-reportedly have COVID-19 or show some of its symptoms. We are building a tool that

1. Will help people track the spread in real-time and self-distance accordingly
2. Give us an idea on how fast the virus is spreading according to unofficial user data.

We believe tracking self-reported/unofficial cases is important since many countries have limited testing capabilities, so official numbers will naturally fail to reflect the nature of reality. Volunteers from all backgrounds are welcome!
