Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

I put this site together as a landing page for the API I made to provide information on the COVID-19 pandemic gripping the world in 2020. The API was a great learning project and is completely free to use in your own projects, if you're interested in giving it a shot, you can find it here.
If you're interested in contributing to the project or just want to give the code a read over, you can find links to both this landing page and the API on my Github.
Here's some more examples of charts made using the data provided by the API.
