According to Little, “I was trying to see the cases across Canada and there really wasn’t a spot where I could see them all at once,” Described the source of the information as fragmented and slow in updating.
When did it happen?
The spike in the Canadian coronavirus cases occurred around the same time when the University of Saskatchewan (USASC) suspended private classes. That time the second-year anatomy and cell biology student, Noah Little released his own site.
He developed the site by using the basic HTML coding
To launch the site, the 19-year student used the simple method, he just follows the daily schedule of the provincial health press conference and plans his day around them. When a COVID-19 case is reported, he adds all reports on his list for publishing on his site.
By using basic HTML coding he can able arrange data including total cases and deaths while providing accurate quotes for each occurrence.
COVID-19 Tracker Canada has a graph
There is also a graph of the COVID-19 tracker Canada, which is visible in Canada in late January. In early March, the beginning of a curve is visible.
For this graph, the student said, “We will eventually be able to see this curve flattening on there, and that’s something that I think is going to be very exciting to see,”
The case number will continue to climb
Visualizing the curve is one of the most valuable features of the tracker However, Little hopes the case number will continue to climb.
The reasons behind launch the site
As Little said, the reasons for starting the site do not work motivation, but he is interested in a health care career in medicine.
