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

05 June 2020 -- op-net-admin

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.

How to get the most out of the tests

24 April 2020 -- op-net-admin

With Covid-19 hitting all areas of our lives, there is a need both socially and politically to know what the state of the citizenry is. We need to know how Covid-19 is evolving, how many citizens have it, how and where they are infected, what is the probability of them getting sick, etc. All these data are necessary in order to take appropriate measures and to know when and how we are going to recover certain areas of our lives and what other aspects are going to change forever.
