One year ago, we started off during the COVID pandemic as FightPandemics, a platform that allows people to come together to gain and offer support during what has been a difficult and unforgiving year for many people. The FightPandemics platform has experienced considerable growth. It achieved over 2,000 monthly active users and hundreds of sign-ups in under 5 months, received $500K in sponsorship funds, and attracted additional donations in the form of software credits from brands such as Amazon Web Services, Slack, and Zendesk. …

The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly affected our lives and minds. Many articles have already talked about the good and bad consequences that restrictions and quarantine have had on people’s minds. Indeed, this break from the chaotic, everyday life has been to some people, a kind of panacea, since they could find some time to rediscover themselves, cultivate new hobbies, relax and somehow detox from the competitive and frenetic life of modern society.

Unfortunately, not everyone has had the luck to live the pandemic in such a good and constructive…

Έχουν περάσει σχεδόν δεκατέσσερις μήνες από τότε που επιβεβαιώθηκε η πρώτη περίπτωση Coronavirus σε μια πόλη της Κίνας, κάτι δεν συμπεριλαμβάνονταν στη λίστα των επιθυμιών μας. Πολύ γρήγορα, ο κόσμος έμαθε πού βρισκόταν η Γουχάν, τις βιομηχανίες που υποστήριζε, καθώς και την επαρχία Χουμπέι στην οποία αποτελεί μέρος της. Σχεδόν αμέσως, η Γουχάν είχε μια θέση στον χάρτη, αλλά όχι για τους σωστούς λόγους.

Λέω «πολύ γρήγορα» γιατί αυτό που έκανε δυνατή αυτήν την ταχεία ροή πληροφοριών ήταν τα τηλέφωνά μας, οι φορητοί υπολογιστές και το Διαδίκτυο που επιτρέπουν την απρόσκοπτη επικοινωνία…

Majdnem tizennégy hónap telt el mióta megjelent az első koronavírusos eset Kína egy városában, amely legtöbbünk bakancslistáján nem szerepelt volna.A világ nagyon gyorsan megtanulta hol is van Wuhan, melyek azok az iparágak amellyeket támogat a város termelése, és hogy Hubei tartományhoz tartozik. Szinte azonnal, Wuhannak lett helye a térképen, csak nem a jó indokokkal.

Azt mondom “nagyon gyors”, hiszen ami ennek az információnak a hirtelen lefolyású elterjedését eredményezte, az a sajat telefonunk, laptopunk és az internet, amely lehetővé teszi a zökkenőmentek kommunikációt (de a félretájékoztatást is) egy globális szinten.

A közösségi media kínai korlatozásainak…

Vai trò của công nghệ trong đại dịch này

Đã gần mười bốn tháng kể từ khi trường hợp đầu tiên của Coronavirus được xác nhận tại một thành phố ở Trung Quốc mà hầu hết chúng ta không có trong danh sách nhóm của mình. Rất nhanh chóng, thế giới biết được Vũ Hán nằm ở đâu, các ngành công nghiệp mà nó hỗ trợ, và nó là một phần của tỉnh Hồ Bắc. …

Il ruolo della tecnologia in questa pandemia

Sono passati quasi quattordici mesi da quando il primo caso di Coronavirus è stato confermato in una città della Cina che molti di noi non avrebbero avuto sulla propria lista dei desideri. Il mondo ha imparato molto rapidamente dove si trova Wuhan, le industrie che supporta, la provincia di Hubei. Wuhan ha avuto immediatamente un posto sulla cartina, solo non per le giuste ragioni.

Dico “molto rapidamente” perché ciò che ha reso possibile questo rapido flusso di informazione sono stati i nostri cellulari, i nostri…

El papel de la tecnología en esta pandemia

Ya han pasado casi catorce meses desde que se confirmó el primer caso de coronavirus en una ciudad de China que la mayoría de nosotros no conocía hasta el momento. Sin embargo, poco después, todo el mundo sabía dónde ubicar Wuhan en el mapa, sus industrias principales y que forma parte de la provincia de Hubei. Casi inmediatamente, Wuhan empezó a tener reconocimiento, pero no por las razones deseadas.

Digo «poco después» porque todo este flujo de información fue gracias a nuestros teléfonos, ordenadores…

L’OMS ha osservato gli effetti globali del COVID-19. L’Organizzazione è stata costante nell’avvisare i vari Paesi circa l’impatto della pandemia. Nel 2020 è stata data particolare enfasi all’uso della mascherina, all’igienizzazione delle mani e al distanziamento sociale. C’è stata una battaglia incessante contro il virus che ha portato ad un’emergenza sanitaria pubblica.

Il 2020 ha arrecato una sofferenza a livello mondiale ed è stato un periodo di immenso dolore per molti.. Ma fortunatamente, la scoperta e il successo della sperimentazione del vaccino contro il COVID-19 hanno portato un po’ di conforto prima…

The spiralling COVID-19 cases keep generating fear globally as there is a steep rise in the number of cases day by day in most parts of the world. The overwhelming news about the waves of the new COVID-19 strain is also creating anxiety with the numbers going high and hospital spaces running low. Amidst this pandemic, there is no doubt that our minds will be under loads of stress which can affect us both physically and mentally. Placing ourselves in a positive frame of mind is definitely the need of the hour. …

The role of technology in this pandemic.

It’s been nearly fourteen months since the first case of Coronavirus was confirmed in a city in China that most of us would not have had on our bucket lists. Very quickly, the world learnt where Wuhan was located, the industries it supported, the Hubei province it was a part of. Almost immediately, Wuhan had a place on the map, just not for the right reasons.

I say ‘very quickly’ because what made this rapid flow of information possible was our phones…
