Meet Jordan, my new favourite!

While I was searching for more data on Covid-19, I came across this video from Jordan Harrod.

I really like the way Jordan explained how the AI prediction works and visually presenting the data.

Thank you Jordan, you have a new fan! Hope the rest of you enjoy her video on this topic.
