Containing COVID-19 with a two-day workweek

A weekly cycle of 2 work days and 5 lockdown days can provide a good tradeoff between minimising health impact and maximising economic activity. It can keep the infection load low while allowing a sustainable, albeit reduced, economy. It can eradicate the virus without reaching herd immunity, thus preventing a large number of deaths.

Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund Grants

This is why the Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF) has added a COVID-19 emergency window to its recent call for proposals, which focuses on generating evidence on the role of technology in accelerating learning and skills among children and adult learners. SIEF funds randomized control trials and quasi-experimental evaluations. We are prepared to expedite the application process for the COVID-19 window to generate results that countries can use immediately as they deal with school closures and prepare for the reopening of schools, including with interventions to offset any losses in learning.

COVID-19 Cognitive City.

Addressing a global pandemic requires global collaboration. To facilitate this, Exaptive, in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has created the COVID-19 Cognitive City.

What is a Cognitive City? It’s a data-centric social network with a goal. The goal of this cognitive city is to stop the spread of COVID-19 and accelerate development of a vaccine.
