7. Covid19

A web site to visualize covid-19 statistics from John Hopkins University. 
The site is updated daily.

Documentation:

Purpose:

More than numbers, I hope the site will help contribute to answering these questions: 
  • How to mourn and memorialize the thousands dying everyday from the COVID-19 pandemic?

  • How to assess the impact on the families and the communities of the deceased?

  • How to build enduring institutions to mitigate their suffering and address systemic inequalities?
Video explainer for site:

Roadmap for site:

This is a work-in-progress currently only showing country level statistics.
The rough plan is to extend along this roadmap:

- publish public repo for other developers
drill down to community level statistics
- connect to statistics on frontline workers.
- support community driven mourning

Inspiration:

"...workers whom we trust with our health, our nourishment, our loved ones, and our lives are too often ignored, underpaid, and overworked..."

"...This is a space to remember and honor every person who died..."

"...America has reached a grim milestone in the coronavirus outbreak — each figure here represents one of the 100,000 lives lost so far. But a count reveals only so much. Memories, gathered from obituaries across the country, help us to reckon with what was lost..."


Example of crowd source photo wall and commentary. Would like to apply to covid19 online memorial.
