17-year-old Develops a Coronavirus Information Website and Accepts Bitcoin Donations

To slow the spread of coronavirus, all people need to show some support, whether it’s working on the front lines as a medic or providing financial support.

Some do what they can — they help spread vital information to raise awareness about the COVID19 coronavirus.

Such effort is a new website for keeping track of the latest statistics and news about the COVID19, nCoV2019.Live, and it accepts bitcoin donations.

The website was created by Avi Schiffmann, a 17-year old high-school student from Seattle, USA, in collaboration with Daniel Conlon – CSS / Design. The website has been online since late December showing real-time data about the coronavirus pandemic.

And it wasn’t in vain: The website has received tens of millions of visitors from all over the world.

There’s a live map view showing the current spread of the COVID-19 around the globe on the website. The map is interactive. The website also has a WiKi page with essential information on COVID-19: what it is, its symptoms, a brief history, ways people get infected, way people can protect themselves, what to do if one thinks they are infected, and a mythbusters section.

The website pulls information from local government websites and health departments like COV19, CDC, and WHO.

Website visitors can subscribe to a newsletter to stay up-to-date on the coronavirus and get updates about the website.

The young developer is seeking financial support on Ko-Fi platform for developing the website further:

“If you’ve found the site helpful or useful then please consider throwing a coffee my way to help support my work, it also helps me support people helping me develop the site! If you prefer bitcoin, my address is: 1Fj7SCHsjnztnv82HPLykziFah62vRGYZ1”

Avi has already received a lot of donations, and feedback like: “Avi, Thanks for site, lots of great information here. Ive linked it and our Montana COVID site to my high school cross country web site so my athletes can see how serious the virus is. Thanks again, keep up the great work.”

So, if you like the idea of this independent project showing the Coronavirus stats, you can support it here by donating either dollars or bitcoins.
