The WHO Just Declared Coronavirus COVID-19 a Pandemic
The World Health Organization declared spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 a pandemic. Here’s what that means.
In times of pandemic, we turn to technology to facilitate collective intelligence, bringing the world together to combat the pandemic in various ways, from real-time information data monitoring, predicting and modeling outbreaks, knowledge sharing and use of social media to disseminate information faster while governments co-ordinate and plan out their communications.
A research collective at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) that works on a range of complex and interdisciplinary problems, united by the goal to better understand and improve societal, health and technological systems for everyone have developed a live Covid19 pandemic tracker.
