A Cluster of 17 Cases
On 21 February 2003, a 64-year-old doctor from Guangdong in China checked into room 911 of the Metropole Hotel in Hong Kong to attend a family wedding. The next morning he woke up with a fever and admitted himself to the nearest hospital. Over the subsequent days, 16 of the guests who stayed on the 9th floor of the hotel that night boarded flights home, taking the virus with them to the Philippines, Singapore, Canada, Vietnam, Australia and the USA. A Cluster of 17 Cases is an interactive website that accompanied an art exhibition exploring the first moments of the outbreak.
The website is designed to be viewed on a mobile device. It was built in Typescript using React.
