Live Coronavirus Tracker by a Washington State Teen.

Last December, long before his state became the U.S. epicenter of COVID-19 deaths and illnesses Avi Schiffmann https://www.linkedin.com/in/avi-schiffmann coded and launched a website https://ncov2019.live/data that tracks and compiles information about the disease from dozens of international news and government websites. Avi attends Mercer Island High School while also earning credits at Bellevue College.

Speaking to Seattle times the Schiffmann pointed out that a lot of the website was written in massive sprees: watching YouTube videos, learning Linux (an open-source operating system) setting up servers. The 17 year old highschool student states how he spent the entire weekend in his room, on my bed, staying up until 7 a.m., sleeping until 2 p.m before the 2nd version went live https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/education/qa-avi-schiffmann-the-washington-state-teen-behind-a-coronavirus-website-with-millions-of-views/

This is an Inspiration to many skilled young people who can use their talents, skills and time to create solutions that can and will forever change people’s lives.

During this season when most schools are closed, parents and guardians have a duty to encourage the children to spend time doing productive activities and reduce the times spent playing games and watching cartoons.
