Desaster response for social resilience

Watching our networks, we can witness the spread of plenty initiatives for digital solidarity.

A main aim of using collaboration and communication tools is to work against social distancing in times of physical distancing. Digital communication media are tools that help to keep ties with distant people.

Some resources about ways for online resilience have been published lately, and are collected here for documentation.

Link lists

Personally I can also recommend to keep collective bookmarks of useful resources in tagged page annotations with I like to use wiki/Q81068910, but others might favour unidad_COVID2019, SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19.

Data science and visualisation

As the data about the pandemic is publicly available, there are quite a few visualisations that try to help increase understanding of the situation.

I think its also useful to keep on referring to reliable sources, such as:

All of the above collections are probably well suited to continue in individual threads later on, but not now during collection.

There’s more that we can learn, though!
