Covid19.Place is an independently run Malaysian website that gathers data from Covid 19 data from all over the world and puts it in a nice and easy to digest layout.
Previously we featured the website when it added the water level alert feature as a response to the devastating floods that hit the country.
It provided useful life-saving information for Malaysians all over the country.
Now it seems that Covid19.Place is the need of our help.
In a Twitter string posted yesterday (13 Feb), the site’s administrator said that they are in dire need of donations.
Those who keep the website running do so voluntarily, but the cost of running such a useful site has caught up with them.
NEW NOTE: We appeal for RM1 from our users. We work voluntarily, tirelessly 16-18 hours to update. We have collected 5.6% and it cost USD1-5/hour for our server, db, data transfer. A collective support of RM1 will able us to continue our work. We have been funding ourselves…— Covid19.Place (@Covid19Place) February 13, 2022
In a new post today, while announcing the country’s five-digit daily Covid19 case in a Twitter post, the administrators of the site announced that they were 691USD short of the amount that they needed to keep the site running and asked the public for help.
The post includes a CIMB account to which you can donate.
Please note that our server has been suspended due to non-payment. We have received many donations and we are short of USD691 to make the server payment. 🙏 Thank you for your kind support 🙏Name: IAM Solution • Acc No: 860-480-1483 • Bank: CIMB Bank Berhad (Malaysia) pic.twitter.com/CaOfPpE2qt— Covid19.Place (@Covid19Place) February 14, 2022
