The project led by IMDEA Networks’ researcher to measure the real impact of Covid using social networks’ surveys now reaches 150 countries

08 July 2020 -- op-net-admin

The project called CoronaSurveys was created to "Measure the Iceberg" and was based on the idea that the iceberg has a visible tip – in this case, the number of confirmed cases - but below that tip, submerged and out of sight, is the rest of the block of ice, one of uncertain dimensions, and which can sink any vessel that does not know its real size. In order to get to a number that is closer to the real number of people affected by Covid-19, the team led by Antonio Fernández Anta published the first surveys on Twitter in Spanish in mid-March. Over the weeks since then, the project has expanded to almost global dimensions. Currently the surveys cover 150 countries and 60 languages.

A geospatial study identifies the most vulnerable areas to COVID-19

Some Spanish areas are more likely than others to suffer a coronavirus outbreak and, therefore, would require greater protection measures against a second wave of COVID-19. The study of mobility during confinement indicates this, based on geospatial analysis. It’s been carried out by researchers from the University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) in collaboration with TAPTAP Digital, using additional data from Predicio and Tamoco.
