Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) – Statistics and Research

“We present information on the number of deaths and cases; on why we should focus on how quickly those numbers double, not on the numbers themselves; on the prevalence of testing, and why that is important for understanding the disease; and what we can and can’t know about how lethal COVID-19 really is. We’ll also explain where we get our data from and why.”

MakerMask is a source for science-based mask designs for community makers to combat the spread of COVID-19. It is important that we use the best information possible to help protect ourselves and our communities. The MakerMask designs use latex-free, water-resistant materials that are likely to provide improved protection over cotton and elastic. We need makers/sewists/helpers of all abilities to begin ramping up production to meet community needs.

Illustrated primer or coronavirus

This course was written to help people with low health and science literacy be more prepared for the COVID-19 epidemic.


Brief19 is a daily roundup of covid-19 research and policy, curated, written, and edited by medical and science experts working on the frontlines. It was created to help other frontline doctors, who are especially time-deficient, stay up to date on relevant news without having to sift through numerous resources. We’re primarily Twitter-based but the website continues to evolve.

Why you must act now – By State

CovidActNow.org was created by a team of data scientists, engineers, and designers in partnership with epidemiologists, public health officials, and political leaders to help understand how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect their region.

This tool is built to enable political leaders to quickly make decisions in their Coronavirus response informed by best available data and modeling.

We built this tool to answer critically important questions such as:

What will the impact be in my region be and when can I expect it? How long until my hospital system is under severe pressure? What is my menu of interventions, and how will they address the spread of Coronavirus?

The COVID Tracking Project

The COVID Tracking Project collects and publishes the most complete testing data available for US states and territories.

Where to Safely Shop during Covid-19

A group of Cambridge residents have come together to help people decide where they can safely shop. The goal is to encourage businesses to comply with containment policies to minimize the spread of COVID-19 virus in our community, and help keep their customers and employees safe. See best practices, and better yet, sign this petition to get more PPE to grocery stores.

Intubation Box

The Intubation Box works by sitting over the head and shoulders of a patient as they are intubated by a provider. The box acts as a protective shield between the patient and medical staff, thereby hopefully minimizing the medical staff’s exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
