The Cost of Covid-19

Originally published on 3/28/2020

I built, a website for tracking the cost of Covid-19 across Europe, China and the United States, in human lives and to their economies.

It uses live data from and is built with Next.js, deployed with Vercel.

Additionally, I have made a Free Open Source Coronavirus / COVID-19 Graphic (Vector SVG, created by me) available for you to use - get it on github.

Update: As I expected when I first created this project, the United States has now surpassed China and Europe in deaths per capita. Vote BIDEN 2020
