What are the most critical problems you are seeing for individuals, communities, businesses, governments, or the world related to COVID-19?

There have already been massive health, economic, and other impacts from the global COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s likely that there will be many more. What COVID-19 related problems do you see, both now and in the future?

 

Here are a few examples of many possible problems you might identify:

  • How to trace the contacts of people who are infected with COVID-19 in Colorado?
  • How to deal with massive unemployment in the US?
  • How to deliver groceries to residents of nursing homes in Lowell, MA?
  • How to provide childcare for working parents who need to return to work while their childrens’ schools are still closed?
  • ...

In addition to identifying new problems, you can also “support” problems that others have already identified which you believe are important.

 

The list of problems entered here will be used to identify problems for future Pandemic Response CoLab activities, including developing solutions for the problems and recruiting people and resources to help implement the solutions.
