One platform to inspire and empower learners, of all age, willing to contribute to collective problem solving.
OpenCovid is an Open Source Pharma & CRI Paris initiative in the #LearningPlanet spirit.

Moving from awareness to action, together.

We are starting our work by curating the best resources and open source projects on covid19 and encouraging collective contributions and open discussions. Next, we will develop learning and problem-solving tools to host and nurture projects.

Help us document the best covid19 resources

Are you working on or know of any resource/project that could help solve the covid19 crisis? Please fill out it to our community curated database so we can feature it online and share with the rest of the world.

OpenCovid timeline

Sense-making

April 2020 - Ongoing

Mapping the best human flourishing projects and resources and hosting community conversations on how to best cope with the crisis.

Local projects

April 2020 - Ongoing

Moving from ideas to local community projects which are built in the open, in transparent and inclusive ways.

Collective intelligence

May 2020 - Ongoing

With time, we aim to harvest the most successful ideas into a common GPS of knowledge.

Can conscience be viral?

We invite you to join us in answering these 3 powerful questions:
1. How do I deal with my fears?
2. What am I learning?
3. In what ways am I able to grow?

  • Synthesis and characterization of novel organo-hydrogel based agar, glycerol and peppermint oil as a natural drug carrier/release material. December 3, 2020
    The very recent Covid-19 pandemic has made the need to understand biocompatible polymers as support material in drug delivery systems and controlled release clearer, especially for organo-hydrogels. This study aims to synthesize various new polymeric materials called gels, hydrogels, and organo-hydrogels according to the monomer used and to investigate their use as drug release systems. […]
  • Trends in deaths from road injuries during the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan, January to September 2020. December 3, 2020
    In Japan, the latest estimates of excess all-cause deaths through January to July 2020 showed that the overall (direct and indirect) mortality burden from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Japan was relatively low compared to Europe and the United States. However, consistency between the reported number of COVID-19 deaths and excess all-cause deaths was […]
  • Multi-route transmission potential of SARS-CoV-2 in healthcare facilities. December 3, 2020
    Understanding the transmission mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 is a prerequisite to effective control measures. To investigate the potential modes of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, 21 COVID-19 patients from 12-47 days after symptom onset were recruited. We monitored the release of SARS-CoV-2 from the patients' exhaled breath and systematically investigated environmental contamination of air, public surfaces, personal necessities, and […]
  • Impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on air pollution levels in East Asia. December 3, 2020
    This study leverages satellite remote sensing to investigate the impact of the coronavirus outbreak and the resulting lockdown of public venues on air pollution levels in East Asia. We analyze data from the Sentinel-5P and the Himawari-8 satellites to examine concentrations of NO, HCHO, SO, and CO, and the aerosol optical depth (AOD) over the […]
  • Early observations on the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on air quality trends across the UK. December 3, 2020
    UK government implemented national lockdown in response to COVID-19 on the 23-26 March 2020. As elsewhere in Europe and Internationally, associated restrictions initially limited individual mobility and workplace activity to essential services and travel, and significant air quality benefits were widely anticipated. Here, break-point/segment methods are applied to air pollutant time-series from the first half […]
