Africa desperately needs good and accurate data to help organisations plan and respond to the virus pandemic across the continent. This is now possible with The Africa COVID-19 Impact Tracker, a crowd-sourced Ushahidi data gathering platform hosted within Liquid Intelligent Technologies’s highly resilient network. The detailed survey response from each anonymous participant is highlighted in the live mapping data, together with granular insight into the number of responses from each geographic region.
The findings are shared with agencies, scientists, enterprises and researchers to help them plan, prepare and respond to the pandemic in the most effective way. Everyone across Africa (but doesn’t just have to be within Africa) is encouraged to play a critical role in sharing their own experience of COVID-19 – from understanding the virus to how it is impacting life at home and work.
