NEW YORK — Since March 2020, Johns Hopkins University’s Coronavirus Resource Center has been a go-to source for information on the spread of COVID-19 and the virus that causes it.
The site has now been viewed more than 1 billion times.
In a time of frightening developments and great uncertainty, the Coronavirus Resource Center has been trusted to deliver accurate, timely information from around the globe and, perhaps most importantly, has done so in a readily comprehensible manner.
Helping provide governments, businesses, and the public with comprehensive testing data paired with expert analysis and guidance—all in an accessible format—was the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s (SNF) aim in supporting the Coronavirus Resource Center. SNF made a $3 million grant for the University’s COVID-19 Testing Insights Initiative in April 2020, as part of the first round of grants in the Foundation’s $100 million global pandemic relief initiative.
