Sourcing and sharing reliable information on COVID-19 is vitally important right now and I would recommend the following handbook and real-time data.
Coronavirus Tech Handbook
London-based technologists are busy compiling this comprehensive tool. It is a resource pioneered by Edward Saperia, who is the dean of Newspeak House at the London College of Political Technologists.
“The Coronavirus Tech Handbook provides a space where technologists, specialists, civic organisations and public & private institutions can collaborate on a rapid and sophisticated response to the outbreak. It is a dynamic resource with many hundreds of contributors that is evolving very quickly. Its design is easy to read, intuitive to use, and allows for easy long term engagement. With your help, we can produce a comprehensive library of all known resources for mitigating every impact of the pandemic.”
