I am an epidemiologist on diabetes surveillance. Diabetes is a major chronic disease among the US population. Based on the current evidence, persons with diabetes usually also have high risk of hypertension, and high risk of COVID-19 fatality.
What it does
I want to abstract information from websites, to identify how many persons (alive or died) with COVID-19 also have prevalent diabetes.
How I built it
I need to find and collect the data from the websites or other resource have the both information of COVID-19 and diabetes, to calculated and posted on the website
Challenges I ran into
The most challenge part is to find the data source.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
So far, none
What I learned
WE need work together
What's next for COVID-19 and diabetes
If we have the information, we can predict the impact of COVID-19 on the vulnerable population.
