This little tracker will help you to be up to date about the Corona virus outbreak and the situation in your country. The display shows alternating the current data of different countries of your choice.
The data is collected by the website www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
I've used our AZ-Touch kit for ESP32 as hardware plattform. This kit comes with a 2.4 inch tft touchscreen, which will be used for the data output.
You can find all information about the hardware here: https://www.hwhardsoft.de/english/projects/arduitouch-esp/
Install the following libraries through Arduino Library Manager
Adafruit GFX Library https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library/archive/master.zip
Adafruit ILI9341 Library https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_ILI9341
You can also download the library also directly as ZIP file and uncompress the folder under yourarduinosketchfolder/libraries/
After installing the libraries, restart the Arduino IDE.
Enter your WiFi SSID & password in the fields in the WiFi section:
#define WIFI_SSID "xxxxxx" // Enter your SSID here
#define WIFI_PASS "xxxxx" // Enter your WiFi password here
You can change/add/delete the countries in the main loop of the program according your interests.
