Covid Fire was developed by two programmers and a physician that wanted to help.

Monitoring and analyzing the Covid-19 data on a regular basis can be difficult and time consuming. We wanted to make this easier for you by delivering insights when its needed most so you can adjust your caution and behavior to the moment.

Since families are directly impacted by the conditions in their own community, this is where we focused our efforts.

We hope this tool helps you and those around you stay safe.
