Amidst the ongoing COVID19 outbreak, we felt a tool was needed to provide quality and fact-based - but also contextual - information in order to help mitigate the fear factor associated with such events. We wanted to offer this solution in a dashboard-type web application, all the while making it visually appealing and staying far from the bright reds and blacks, which are usually more fear-inducing than calming.
Nopanic.io offers users the ability to see different COVID19 outbreaks around the world for the present, the past, and even 7 days in the future using a machine learning model to predict the future number of cases. Although getting the big picture is always useful, we wanted to provide the user with a way to know if they have to adapt their lifestyle depending on their region's situation. Thus, by entering their location in the search bar, the user is able to see the number of cases in their region and, based on this number, is given safety guidelines and useful hotlines. For example, if the number of cases in an area is under 100, the user is told to proceed normally but to adopt good sanitary discipline. However, if the number of cases exceeds 1,000, the user better avoid using public transit and stay at home until the outbreak calms down.
