Novel coronavirus (107) CORE Group: Call for Covid-19 preparedness and response resources (5)

9 March, 2020

Dear Chris and HIFA group

You have very aptly pointed out the gap in reporting.

In context regarding reporting of cases of CoVID-19, there are many low resource countries where surveillance is not integrated and which are failing to contribute towards global numbers.

Considering our group has a wide audience, I wanted to explore which disease surveillance and alert generation applications are being used, especially for case based reporting in your country.

We can learn or benefit from each other’s experiences.

Best regards

Mariam
