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

Created over 1 year ago
248 Volunteers

About the Project


Selftrace is an open-source effort to map self-reported COVID-19 cases in real-time. We require that users self-report and, as a reward, show them a live map with anonymous clusters of users who are symptomatic or have tested positive.

Our aim is to build a tool that will

1. allow people to track the spread in real-time and take pre-emptive measures to avoid contact with high risk individuals
2. show people how fast the virus is spreading according to unofficial user data
3. allow us to collect meaningful data on a daily basis which we may share with scientists to further their research.

Volunteers from all backgrounds are welcome!
