About the solution

Lee Jun-young was living in South Korea during the Covid-19 pandemic and, while trying to keep up with the news, he found the data provided by the government hard to understand.

The date released by the health officials contained information about the locations where coronavirus patients had been, but it wasn’t very visual. So, Lee ”thought it would be nice to mark them on a map," and. decided to use his skill as a former Android software engineer, developing Corona Map.

Corona Map plots the locations in South Korea where people known to have had COVID-19 have been, to make avoiding these areas easier.

"When I think that this app can prevent the spread of coronavirus patients by advising people not to go to certain places ... I feel proud," Lee said.
