17-year-old from US builds worlds biggest online coronavirus tracker

17-year-old high school student, Avi Schiffmann has created the world’s biggest coronavirus tracker.

The website provides information on the constantly changing numbers of confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries caused by the coronavirus across the world. Schiffmann is a self-taught coder and launched his website in late December last year when coronavirus had not yet been reported outside of China. The website, nCoV2019.live has been visited over 350 million times.

After noticing how incredibly difficult it was initially to track coronavirus cases, because people were mostly dependent on Chinese government websites, Schiffmann decided to create his own tracker.

“When I started this website, there were less than 1,000 total cases, they were all in the Wuhan area of China, and there was a lot of misinformation spreading. So I decided it would be cool to create a website and make it a central hub of information,” says Schiffmann while speaking to Democracy Now.

In addition to this, the site features maps and information on the disease with the option of subscribing to a newsletter that gives you daily updates.
