Three young web designers from Kashmir have developed a website to keep people informed about COVID19 spread in J&K.
Haider Ali, Mudasir Ali and Vikas Bukhari launched the
website ‘covidkashmir.org’ on Wednesday.
Haider, a student of Computer Science said they got in touch
with each other on social media and decided to make some web tools in the wake
of pandemic to keep people informed about the disease and its spread in
“Before launching the website, we developed a simple webpage
containing data about COVID19 cases in J&K,” he said, adding the website
also gives helpline numbers along with the list of doctors on call released by
the health authorities.
The trio has turned these web pages into a full-fledged
website called covidkashmir.org and added various other options.
“All the information
on the website is updated continuously. We have also put on it the data from
the World Health Organization about frequently asked questions. We have
recently added a map to the website which gives district-wise information about
the spread of the infection,” he said.
Mudasir had earlier made a COVID19 tracker webpage
independently on his website mudsirali.com.
“On the page, I updated people about the cases of COVID19 in
J&K. The page link was doing rounds on social media and many people were
praising the move,” Mudasir said. “We all have to get together and do our bit
to fight the deadly virus,” he said.
