COVID-19 infections are rising exponentially. Real-time geospatial and hyperlocal situational awareness is needed now to facilitate the community level action that is critical to a resilient pandemic response.
What do we need (at a massive scale) to contain COVID-19?
Oasis is a crowd-source/crowd-force platform that gives every citizen (expert, professional, and everyone else) the power to help fight COVID-19. Through Oasis, everyone can share their COVID story and, if ill – compare symptoms, their recent travel history and potential contacts.
By sharing your COVID-19 story, together we can help to mitigate the spread of this virus. Oasis is able to assist with:
What can each person contribute to stopping this pandemic?
Maps create an inherent geospatial awareness that is difficult to provide by any other medium. Although the overall problem permeates through every corner of the world, many issues are inherently localized. A hospital that needs supplies will best benefit from resources that can come locally. Knowledge that there is a coming surge of cases in a very specific region can help systems prepare. Individual citizens, who may not know how to help to keep their family or neighbors safe, now have a clear visual of how to help. No matter if you are sick or well, diagnosed with COVID-19 or just have allergies, you have a way to put that on the map. The visual representation gives a direct awareness of the state of your local neighborhood in terms of health and resources available.
… with Growing Intelligence
All data are aggregated with vetted information layers for known COVID-19 cases, local best practices, news and alerts.
Created by a team of clinicians, engineers, designers, and privacy experts at UCSD, our collective platform gives everyone a chance to contribute by telling their story on a living map. Like google maps for our lives, Oasis helps everyone find their way through COVID-19 and coming disasters. This platform goes far beyond this disaster and can be used to make better and smarter decisions for government policies, healthcare responses, and individuals.
Right now we are in a sprint to respond to COVID-19. We need your help to build, get the word out, and support the effort. We’re all in this together.
