Project Lockdown: Mapping the impact of NPIs on Human and Digital Rights

Created 4 months ago
50 Volunteers

About the Project


Project Lockdown provides an overview of COVID-19 NPIs (Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions) being enforced across the globe to help visualize the success of different pandemic response measures, monitor effects on Human and Digital Right, and clarify evaluation metrics.

How far along is it

We developed the Beta version during the EU vs Virus hackathon in late-April. As a result, we won second place for the "Protection of Citizens & Democracy" challenge.
Our immediate goal is to publicly launch the app and website.
Aside from working on the app itself, we are also developing relevant documentation and are working on social media/outreach and data analysis and interpretation.
