About this project

This little tracker will help you to be up to date about the coronvavirus outbreak and the situation in your country. The display shows alternating the current data of different countries of your choice.

The data is collected by the website www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Hardware

I've used our AZ-Touch kit for Arduino MKR as hardware plattform. This kit comes with a 2.4 inch tft touchscreen, which will be used for the data output.

Software

The tracker is using SSL communication with the website worldometers.info It is necessary needed to add this URL via the WiFi101 / WiFiNINA Firmware Updater of the Arduino IDE to the Arduino MKR WiFi 1010 board

Furthermore you can change/add/delete the countries in the main loop of the program according your interests.

Please check the correct names of the needed countries on www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
