A new COVID-19 monitoring website is getting a lot of attention. Seventeen-year-old Avi Schiffmann created the site to pull data from around the world, essentially giving you real-time updates on the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Before you even heard of COVID-19, Avi Schiffmann was tracking it.
The Washington State high school student wrote code that updates the number of people affected by the illness every 10 minutes. Schiffmann collects and then cross-references data from the health departments, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
