While talking to family and friends in this abnormal time, I figured out how crucial it is to have a safe and open space to ask questions, deal with new situation and handle uncertainty. We receive many information - almost too rapidly. And there is a lack of evidence if those information are validated; and this results in lack of trust. Corina, could be integrated on the WHO website (or similar accurate source of information platforms) and handled by experts remotely. The outreach should be great. Questions could be asked, accurate answers would be given. Feedback loops created and insights generated.

H i Rozsa Simon Great to read through your idea. I really like your perspective on thinking about feedback loops, an important aspect of validating if the information was effective. I'm curious what the prototype for your idea might look like?

I also like the potential connection and working together with Kanupriya Agarwal, MD . Her idea on America's Telehealth Resource Aggregator could be a potential source of health personnel you might work with.
