We are no tech giant but we (YSplit) launched an open source app called 'Lava Manus' in a Corona focused Hackathon the other week so you can track how many times you have washed your hands in a day. It is gamified, so you can see which countries and cities are washing hands the least and most. It is bare bones but it is open source so if any devs want to submit a PR please do!!! We have many feature ideas we have added to issues to get started. App link: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/la... And here is the repo: https://github.com/boatengyeboah... Features yet to build: - Reminder to wash hands - Venmo like public feed of people around the world washing hands
