COVID-19 Media Information Application

During a time of misinformation and isolation, I hope to connect people to their communities and give access to truthful information.

With this COVID-19 Information application, I wish to filter all related Coronavirus information to filter what is true and false. There has been a widespread of misinformation and ambiguity in today's news that has been leaving people for a lost of morale. Hopefully with this application, it can restore a sense of awareness for people as well as a platform for those to share their concerns and stories during these trying times.

What is the need are you focusing on?

I am hoping to focus on awareness and helping local restaurant business spread word about their needs or services. There is not only a lack in awareness about the COVID-19 (such as how it is spread/contacted and what we may do to prevent it) there is a lack in knowledge of what businesses are opened, how they are trying to reach out to the community, and what they are selling now that things need to be packaged differently. With this I hope to help communities stay connected with local businesses and real news during this time of overwhelming confusion.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

Best examples of business adaption I've seen during this response has been the quick response to web/digital formatting of ordering food. There have been some businesses such as Super Duper, Little Sweet, and several others in my community that have brought their restaurants to an accessible format for customers to order and pickup at safe measures.
