Seattle teen creates website to track the coronavirus

SEATTLE — A teen in the Seattle area is helping the world with a website he developed to help us track the virus.

Washington state has had the most coronavirus deaths in the country, 24. So 17-year-old Avi Schiffmann created the open-source website, hoping to create a portal for accurate information about the deadly virus. The site pulls the latest outbreak numbers from the Center of Disease Control and World Health Organization every ten minutes.

Avi says this ensures that users get the most current and accurate information about the spread of the disease. So far, more than 2,000,000 people worldwide have checked out the site in search of the latest numbers.

Avi Schiffmann, developer of the website, said “I decided it would be kinda cool if I made a website that was sort of the central hub of information. So I could make sure there is no misinformation and the numbers were as accurate as possible.”
