The dashboard will provide a covid-19 summary, source analysis, testing summary, bed occupancy and availability by district.

Sharing his thoughts on the platform, CN Ashwath Narayan, deputy chief minister, Karnataka said, “In these testing times, technology innovation has been our greatest ally. Using innovative technology solutions to fight the pandemic, we are taking a huge step towards showcasing the country’s capacity to solve real-time issues in any environment."
