Have you heard of any data scraping initiatives?

I know you're talking about a different type of data collection initiative, but a friend of mine has created a public repo to allow any developer to help write a scraper for this site: https://coronadatascraper.com/#home

It's a place to collect and scrape data from government and healthcare websites and put it all in one place. He's about to get a lot of help from volunteers at google and I hope this can get big. I've started writing some scrapers, but it's a somewhat slow process. Anyone is allowed to help!

Yeah, so far that's all it is, though we're trying to piece it all together into a single spot to show global coverage even down to the county level where possible. I think it may be a great place to add a section of healthcare or even self reporting to add to a database which could be included in these numbers.
