Sources

This program is a custom data collection engine built in PHP and using the MK Ultra framework, and the HTML was created in Sparkle for Mac.  The site is hosted on www.Hostinger.com.  


Information is pulled every 10 minutes directly from the World Health Organization situation reports and daily from the Center for Disease Control COVID-19 Statistics report.  

The formula used to calculate the clock is a comparison of the last 12 and 24 hours of reported data from both sources, then divided by 1,440 minutes per day.
