His creation runs every minute, examines the website of the Ministry of Health where vaccination statistics are published in the country and looks at whether the link containing the .ods spreadsheet has changed from the previous check. "If so, he downloads it, with a library he takes out the data he needs and compares it with the spreadsheet of the last day," Cárdenas explains to Genbeta.
