Resistbot is a multipurpose and multifunction chatbot. Right now it's the easiest way to lobby both federal and state officials who are currently crafting a legislative response to the pandemic. Our end goal is to give everyone a voice and able to fight for what they want to see, no matter what it is, from social distancing measures at the state level, to federal UBI stimulus, to no corporate bailouts, to more health care supplies, and more. We've also just built covid-19 specific functionality to inform users of a variety of important information for their home state.Remotecreated

We are going to mobilize millions of people to join the fight against COVID-19.
The COVID-19 crisis overwhelms healthcare systems all around the world. One of the critical bottlenecks at hospitals is human resources. Doctors, nurses and staff need to be working hectic schedules without a break for months, risking their lives.
When layman people are asked to volunteer for helping the fight against COVID-19, they show up in large numbers as evidenced in the US, the UK, India, Italy and more. On the other hand, these volunteers do not show up before being subject to a clear call.
We will create a catchy volunteering initiative that people will take pride to carry its armband or even retweet on Twitter. Being shared on social media platforms heavily, we will register millions of volunteers and save thousands of lives.Remotecreated

We have excellent access to a top manufacturer of COVID-19 home test kits. These take 10 minutes to use, do not require a doctor, and give instant results. These tests will be free to those in need.
To slow the rate of spread in the USA, we will be giving away home test kits to those unable to access testing otherwise.
We are also in talks with local governments to channel test kits to most effected regions.Remotecreated

AI company Gero has reviewed the existing drugs and other agents tested on humans and found potential coronavirus treatments. The list of found drugs has been released to initiate urgent clinical trials.
Gero, the leader in AI-driven drug discovery, has used its AI platform to identify the potential anti-COVID-19 agents that have been previously tested on humans. Six of them have been approved, three were withdrawn, and the other nine have been already tested in clinical trials. The emergency of the situation, as well as the legal and regulatory status of these agents, make it possible to start immediate clinical trials for most of the suggested drugs and collaborations.

There are so many inspiring teams working to combat COVID-19 and so many incredible projects here on HWC.
We want to help as may of these projects and teams as possible to thrive: to help your projects save lives, alleviate suffering and to combat this pandemic as swiftly as we all can together.
We're committed to helping other teams and projects excel with the help of public donations. We want to help you as project leaders and volunteers gather the funds you need for your life-saving projects and we want to give those who long to help out a place to find and donate to all kinds of teams who are working to fight COVID-19.
1. Help projects and teams working on COVID-19 solutions to setup donations on trusted third-party platforms, if they need one and have not created this already.
2. List as many projects’ donation pages as we can.
3. Create public awareness to accrue funds for your vital work and enable those who want to support your projects to do so.Remote / Europe / UScreated

The project name is in reference to the idea that communities can help themselves in times of crises (and normally), and each individual can be both a volunteer or a person in need of help, depending on the day.
Based on a tool built for Hurricane Sandy. Build a reputation by running successful missions, delivering groceries or checking on someone, Request financial help (and donor match) for those who may be struggling financially. The reputation system and credit trust lines for credit are a core part of this which we hope to work to improve over time.
Right now the focus is on building a support tool to help local organizers stay organized.
Based on experience, the need is often towards matching volunteers with needs at first and then will move towards keeping track of reputations and such for volunteers (mission scores), and then over time, the need for funds and donor matching becomes more important. We want to build something to cover all those bases.
Integrated within this project is another project, SafeTrace API, a contact tracing solution to ensure the safety and privacy of everyone involved. This is a separate project.Remotecreated

Phone-to-phone video chat without Internet or a Local Area Network needed.
A single-purpose application allowing high-quality audio and video chat between two nearby mobile devices without external networking. Essentially turning two phones into a pair of video-enabled "walkie-talkies", connected to one another by Wi-Fi signals without any other network or devices involved.
Intended for use where biosecurity makes direct contact difficult and unsafe, allowing easier communication with patients inside biosecurity zones.
Primary use-case (based on requests from medics) is a COVID-19 medic checking in frequently with a patient in an isolation room without physically visiting each time.
Medics can use it to interact more frequently with their patients while conserving PPE and minimizing exposure risk. Families can use it to interact with loved ones that cannot be safely visited in person. Works like a baby monitor, but deployed on any mobile device without additional hardware.
Open source and freely available to all users. Copyleft in hopes that improvements made by commercial contributors will be shared.Remotecreated

We are a group called Lefty Lenses who have been applying selfie lenses (like the Snapchat puppy filter) to politics for the 2020 election. Our lenses have reached 125M people in 10 weeks, and we've spent $0.
Now we turn our expertise in this incredibly viral (no pun intended) medium towards spreading public health into on coronavirus. But done in a way that doesn't feel preachy. This is our speciality, and we'd like to help.Remotecreated

Verboden Labs is helping hospitals and city public heath care officials source COVID-19 Antibody Detection Tests to determine who has recovered from the disease and is now immune. Testing for antibodies especially in people that didn't even know they had it because they had mild or no symptoms is a crucial part of the public health strategy and its impact could be enormous. A test that produces results within 15 minutes would enable healthcare workers who have already had the virus and are immune, to safely return to the front lines to care for patients. I need your help with the following tasks:
1. Identify the best free platform for knowledge sharing about the COVID-19 antibody tests with the public health community and help setup
2. Compile, code and maintain a list of FAQs
3. Design assets for social media posts, infographics, e-blasts, etc. Current campaigns include: a GoFundMe campaign asking for test-kit donations. For every $30 we will donate a free test-kit to first responders in the hardest hit areas. Social media campaign: "Spread the word, not the virus" and "The only thing going viral should be this donation campaign for Test-kits for first responders"
4. Maintain social media and e-blast campaignsRemotecreated

Biomedical technicians (biomeds for short) are the repair experts at hospitals, and in many regions they are stretched thin. There are a wide variety of machines made by a number of different manufacturers at hospitals around the world, and there is no single resource for how to repair all of them. We don’t know how many machines will fail once hospitals are truly taxed. We don’t know which parts of those machines are most at risk.
Some manufacturers heroically host service manuals for their equipment on their website, and some make them more challenging to locate. There is no single source of information for biomeds to access. Biomed forums are frequently populated with requests for specific PDF service manuals. The closest thing to a central resource is Frank’s Hospital Workshop, a fantastic website run out of Tanzania with hundreds of manuals and very helpful how-to resources for maintaining medical equipment. But Frank’s site is a one-person operation, and a single point of failure, should overwhelming traffic come calling.
We’re going to change that. Our biomed technicians’ time is too precious to waste on internet Easter-egg hunts. iFixit is building a central resource for maintenance and repair of hospital equipment. We need help from fixers everywhere, medical professionals, and biomedical technicians to make sure this is as robust, relevant, and useful as possible.

The current shortage of filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) might be alleviated if they could be reused by decontaminating them in a simple device - i.e. something a DIY person could build and supply to hospitals, GP surgeries, etc. There is evidence that a UV-C light cabinet might serve this purpose. This project seeks to encourage the production of such cabinets with the following key characteristics:
1) constructed from a design which has been tested for its effectiveness in decontaminating FFR masks against the SARS-Cov-2 virus as well as for its operator safety. Above all else the cabinet must be safe.
2) built at home using cheap, readily available components. DIY construction avoids the need for setting-up manufacturing facilities, distribution, etc.
3) checked for use at each location according to applicable regulations. The use of a DIY appliance at a hospital or GP surgery needs careful consideration, but at a minimum an electrician will need to check the cabinet is constructed according to the design and is safe to use.
4) used according to Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the design. A key part of the design is the production of clear instructions for the safe use of the cabinet which can be adapted for local requirements.
We envisage that multiple groups will undertake the development of a design and its subsequent testing. This project aims to support such groups by sharing information and providing common standards. We will also act as a central resource for DIY people seeking to select a verified design from which to build their own cabinets.
We are particularly interested in getting volunteers associated with Universities, particularly undergrads. This is because University labs are more likely to have the equipment and expertise necessary to undertake the testing and will hopeful support their own students in such a project.remotecreated

We are going to spread positive, hopeful, yet realistic messages through the use of a chat-bot, social media, and a website!
All messages will be centered around the following claim: COVID-19 and it's global impact has incited mass hysteria which is a great opportunity for promoting cautious and safe behavior; however, doing so also encourages reckless and harmful actions. Such messages are spread by social media and people who believe they have scientific 'authority.' Rather than flagging such posts or defaming such people, both of which are unacceptable, we should spread current progress worldwide which has gone unrecognized. Personally, I feel many look to far into the dangerous environment of many medical workers, when also they should be looking at their amazing achievements and provide them more praise or be inspired to also take action rather than panic.Remotecreated

We have a two-part COVID-19 medical helpline. First, our AI system digitally assesses a patient's need for medical attention. Then, those who likely have contracted the virus and who are put at great risk by it are automatically virtually connected with one of the physicians in our national network of medical professionals. The medical attention that the patient receives comes at no cost to the patient, because our system accepts Medicare and Medicaid.
AI and telemedicine are the tools that we need to adopt in this pandemic. AI triages patients in order to allow medical professionals to maximize their time, while telemedicine takes the burden off of hospitals and allows people to receive care at home (reducing the spread of the disease).
Anyone can access these medical resources at no cost to them. We firmly believe that our system can minimize disparities in healthcare availability.remotecreated

**We are on a mission to connect the dots.
A plan is underway to bridge information gaps that have been harming our ability to respond to the world-wide pandemic Covid-19. The information needed exists, the technology is capable. What's missing is the connection. An end-to-end global community of partners, contributors and supporters are joining forces to end silos and build a readily available stream of data to those who need it, when they need it.
**We are building the first Covid-19 data ecosystem
Many teams are building APIs around the globe. While that is helpful, more is truly needed. We are building a full circle data ecosystem where data owners, aggregators and users can easily share and access data across the world, covering multiple areas around cases, patient data and supplies. Combining a Cloud-based data lake and a set of open APIs, our crowdsourced project is aimed at unifying all current data gathering efforts around Covid-19, to help all the key stakeholders (hospitals, governments and manufacturers) make their critical life-saving decisions.
>> Think of this as a grassroots initiative to drive data transparency across covid19 across the globe!Global / remotecreated

JS, Python, Django, SQL, Bootstrap, CSS,
*IDEA: Map-Based Website, Quarantined, Isolated or At-Risk people can ask for Help. People with little or no ability to get things themselves can ask for assistance from community members.
General UI: Map-Based Website using Google API
The Helpers: Can enter in their information about where they are located and what they can help with. IE. Grocery pickup, Perscription pickup, Medical Supplies, Entertainment (DVD's, Books, Video games, Etc.), Phone Calls\ Video Calls To help with loneliness depression (Maybe even Psychiatrists etc.)
The Weakened(Need better Marketing): Can reach out for Help for Themselves OR on behalf of the Elderly or others in need. Reach out for Food, Medicine, Canned Goods, Entertainment, Company (Video and Phone Calls), Books, Diapers, Etc.
The Logic: Based on Geolocation of postal code and willingness to travel X km's away, The Helpers can pick and choose any tasks that the Weakened have requested. Once they confirm, work on the logic to either be a middle man OR let them communicate directly. Once the task is complete, Mark it as such and remove it from the general Queue.
The Outcome: Eliminate Dispair for those that may have Covid AND Potential Spread by eliminating the need to break isolation for essential goods. Coming together as a community to help those in need.
Team: 2 Programmers So Far, Both with toddlers and full-time jobs, so working in between as best we can.

Help With COVID is a clearing house for people (especially engineers & software developers, bio, medicine, manufacturing) to find projects to contribute to, and for projects to find help.
We've been overwhelmed by the number of people who want to help, and the number of high-quality projects that need it. Our hope is that this is a way for projects and people to find each other and to get to the other side of this as soon as possible.Remotecreated
