About a month ago I decided to get into Go a bit. It's always kind of been an interesting programming language since it's modern, simple and has quite powerful multi-threading capabilities, most of which I have yet to use. I was asked if I could program a Discord bot that would print the weekly Covid-19 incidence numbers in Germany and I thought that's a great idea, so here we are.

You can find the source code for this bot [here](https://github.com/Witcher01/discord_covid19). I thought I'd share it since I put in a bit of work recently.
