Information around COVID-19

International links about COVID-19

On this page we have collected some links to international web sites that provide information of various kinds around COVID-19 and the pandemic. The idea behind this page is to provide a more international view on the available information worldwide. We have started with our European project partners, but you are more than welcome to send us your links the ones, that you deem the most relevant ones.

Be aware: most links refer to text in the respective language 😉

Digital Twins of Cities Simulate Coronavirus Public Policy Impacts
President Trump’s stated desire that the country be “opened up” from social distancing by Easter (April 12) is a hotly debated coronavirus issue in political, media and healthcare circles. But an AI-driven answer to the controversy may come in part from the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute, whose digital twins simulation platform could help state and local governments better understand how the contagion is spread and anticipate where hot spots will happen.

Folding@home takes up the fight against COVID-19 / 2019-nCoV
Folding@home is joining researchers around the world working to better understand the 2019 Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to accelerate the open science effort to develop new life-saving therapies. By downloading Folding@Home, you can donate your unused computational resources to the Folding@home Consortium, where researchers working to advance our understanding of the structures of potential drug targets for 2019-nCoV that could aid in the design of new therapies. 

How can Data Science be Instrumental in Combatting Corona Outbreak?
171,909 Cases; 6,351 Deaths; 77,783 Recoveries.
These are some metrics as on March 16, 2020, of Coronavirus Outbreak that began its rampage on the last day of 2019 and brought the world into a frenzy in less than three months. In the 2020s, to better combat this global health emergency we can understand the spread of COVID-19 with the arsenal of new-age data-driven techniques.

Coronavirus: How Artificial Intelligence, Data Science And Technology Is Used To Fight The Pandemic
Since the first report of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China, it has spread to at least 100 other countries. As China initiated its response to the virus, it leaned on its strong technology sector and specifically artificial intelligence (AI), data science, and technology to track and fight the pandemic while tech leaders, including Alibaba, Baidu, Huawei and more accelerated their company’s healthcare initiatives..

In the coronavirus pandemic, we’re making decisions without reliable data
The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco. At a time when everyone needs better information, from disease modelers and governments to people quarantined or just social distancing, we lack reliable evidence on how many people have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 or who continue to become infected.

Using Advanced Analytics to Track Coronavirus Trends, Patterns & Predictions
What happens when a virus-based disease spreads stealthily across the world, at an alarming spread rate, without sight of it ending anytime soon? Relatively unheard of just a couple of months ago, the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that emerged from Wuhan has already triggered a global health emergency.
