Help support an unbiased, rigorous, data-driven approach to COVID-19
February 2021 Update: Thank you for your interest in donating to my project. I am very grateful to have reached my fundraising goal - we raised $50k from over 600 donors! If you are still interested in donating, I kindly request that you consider a donation to your local food bank, GiveDirectly, or Stop Asian Hate.
covid19-projections.com is entirely built and run by myself, Youyang Gu. Since April, I have volunteered thousands of hours of my time to making sure that people have the best data and model possible to make informed decisions.
I didn’t set up this page until December because I wanted to focus purely on the modeling. Having your support now would make my job much easier and allow me to continue focusing full-time on providing the best COVID-19 modeling and analysis.
I hope to continue to dedicate my efforts to this project for as long as possible, until normality returns.
With your donation, I can:
- Continue to work on covid19-projections.com full-time
- Pay for dedicated hosting and computing
- Expand research efforts
- Increase reach
- Fight misinformation
- Inspire further action
January 2021 Update: For the purpose of full disclosure, I have also received a grant from Emergent Ventures to support my COVID-19 modeling efforts.

I am very much appreciative and grateful for all of your support over the past year. Without the support, I would not have been able to keep this project going for as long as I did. I look forward to a better 2021.
With my sincerest gratitude,
