About Us & Our Vision

We are an Open Source community driven project run by enthusiastic folks like yourself who are volunteering selflessly to support Tamilnadu through this crisis. Request you to please maintain the decorum of this group.


We are building a strong community to collaborate and support our nation during this crisis. 


For this, we have built a website to provide real time and accurate data of CoVID-19 spread in Tamilnadu from various reliable sources.


Rather than just the few numbers on the website, we are trying to create a rich data-set of the patients that will be helpful during containment and mitigation efforts.




We, volunteers, are running this show purely pro-bono. That said, if you wish to donate us, donate your time.
