I chose to select those sources which are reliable because many a posts or information given by people are not relevant or may be a misinformation. Secondly, information should be provided with local language translation on all those reliable platforms to reach in depth of a society.

Upload or share a link to this resource/message/source of information to share it with others.

Above screenshots are from my FB page. I shared data from gisanddata and worldometers.info websites as well to assess real time cases data.

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

The sustainable information from reliable resources motivated me to share that information with my community in their local language. It has countered some of the wrong or misleading info circulating on social media or other sources. People love the authenticity of the information relevant to corona virus.

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • News: Television
  • News: Digital
  • Social Media
  • WHO (World Health Organization)
  • NGO or Non-profit Organization

What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?

We are missing the information about the evolution of corona virus from SARS and MERS like viruses to COVID19 and also its reliable treatment.

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

Local folks around the world who are less educated and who don't access social media or living in far flung areas or those who are facing war like conditions, natural disasters and poverty are less likely to get information which is sustainable and legible. Therefore, there is need of providing them all the authentic info in their own language.
