17-year-old turns down US$ 8 million offer for his Covid-19 website

Performed by: nCoV2019.live

Country: United States

The 17-year-old American, Avi Schiffmann, turned down an US$ 8 million offer for his coronavirus data-tracking website — nCoV2019.live.

The platform, which is updated with data from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and websites from the governments of countries, sparked the interest of a company that intended to have the editorial control of the site placing advertisements targeting the millions of visitors.

While Schiffmann is proud of the work he’s done, he doesn’t want to become a model for how to make a name for one’s self during a pandemic.
