About this website

Stay Informed, Stay Safe

At a time when the number of positive COVID-19 cases are on a rapidly increasing trend, it is imperative to have access to reliable and actionable information to keep oneself safe. While enough information is available at national and state level, there is no credible source of information at local city level, specially for relatively smaller cities like Karnal. This initiative, https://karnalcovid.in, aims to fill that gap by disseminating factual information about the novel Coronavirus in Karnal and keeping citizens of Karnal safe. The site would also feature blog posts authored by local health practitioners and district authorities, advising the people about various things pertaining to COVID-19.
About Myself

Something about me

Hi! My name is Aakarsh Kaushal and I am an 11th grade student in non-medical stream who dreams to be a computer engineer one day. I am passionate about coding and have been learning various coding languages on my own through online lessons. I had been following data related to Coronavirus outbreak in India but didn't find any credible source of local information about Karnal. That gave me inspiration to come up with this website in order to not only provide various statistics related to COVID-19 in Karnal but also to provide information regarding various aspects of COVID-19 from credible local and worldwide sources.
