iCovMAS: Interactive Web Mapping of Novel Corona-virus Cluster

| Posted by | Categories: ICT, Silver Winners

December 2019, the world was shocked by an unprecedented outbreak caused by a novel coronavirus officially known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-COV-2) or COVID-19. According to WHO (2020), more than 332, 930 people from 147 countries and territories have been reported ill and more than 14, 510 have died from the rapidly spreading SARS-CoV-2 virus, including Malaysia. In Malaysia, the largest number of COVID-19 cases come from Tabligh clusters. Thus, the ideas arise to visualize online current datasets of cluster Covid-19 diseases throughout the district and state base on cases and to help organizations understand how the virus can spread rapidly in certain areas. This project is significant to provide an awareness to people who were involved in health management. It can provide an accurate estimation of the cluster tracking of the COVID-19 system by using geospatial technology. This is fulfilled with Sustainable Development Goals United Nations which are Goal3: Good Health and Well-Being, Goal11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, and Goal8: Decent works and economic growth. This prototype web map hopefully can help public health in order to monitor the cluster and improve the precaution system. It has the potential inaccessible to national citizens and Visible Cluster mapping globally.
