What is the need are you focusing on?
COVID-19 has quickly evolved into the greatest public health challenge of our generation. Education, awareness and provision of accurate information are powerful tools to prevent its spread. Public awareness of infectious diseases plays an important role in disease control; a lack of reasonable knowledge of infectious diseases leads to low detection rates, the interruption of treatment, discrimination and stigma. The coronavirus outbreak sparked what the World Health Organization called an "infodemic" — an overwhelming amount of information on social media and websites. CoronaCombat tackles this infodemic in a fun and engaging way.
