= Commons-oriented, P2P-driven, open source initiatives to help combat the outbreak of Covid-19

What is the difference between this and other directories ? There are many good directories on Corona solutions and initiatives out there, and they are listed here as well. However these directories are specialized by community of practice, topic or locality. This directory attempts to operate at the global meta-level, offering a fuller picture of what is happening.

This guide focuses on:

1) initiatives from open source communities and open hardware medical devices 2) grassroots-based mutual aid initiatives 3) the wider context of societal effects and policy proposals and reforms, from a p2p/commons point of view.

  • The P2P Foundation supports the following collaborative initiative: Viral Solidarity an open and collaborative wiki to map, connect and organize information channels, solidarity initiatives, innovation and social cooperation from local to global in response to the pandemic". [1]


Contents

General Context

(this companion article, explains the specific moment in human history, see: The Pulsation of the Commons: The temporal context for the cosmo-local transition. By Michel Bauwens, with Jose Ramos. P2P Foundation, 2020.

Key insights

  • Physical distancing only mitigates the rate of infection. Mass testing, and industrial mobilization, is the only thing that can actually really suppress it. [2]

Resources

  • Viral Solidarity an open and collaborative wiki to map, connect and organize information channels, solidarity initiatives, innovation and social cooperation from local to global in response to the pandemic".
  • Crowdfight COVID-19: An initiative from the scientific community to put all available resources at the service of the fight against COVID-19
  • LitCovid is a curated literature hub for tracking up-to-date scientific information about the 2019 novel Coronavirus. It is the most comprehensive resource on the subject, providing a central access to 1558 (and growing) relevant articles in PubMed.


  • See below in the Encyclopedia, but also:

Apps

Market failure:

  • low-wage-sector companies are now exacerbating the spread of COVID-19, insofar as they refused to pay their workers sick pay, forcing them to go to work.

[3]

  • price gouging of medical devices
  • failure to produce medical producs and devices needed for pandemics

Medical Issues

  • The ethics of triage NJEM


Mental Health Resources

Testing Kits

ATTENTION, this is the PRIORITY now for the open source, p2p-peer production, commons-oriented movements: physical distancing is only a mitigation and flow management tactic and does not eradicate the virus; what is need for that is mass testing capabilities, as practiced successfully in several East Asian countries:
