  4. Looking for ways to use my skills as a software developer to help with COVID-19 response.
    1. Great! A good place to start is just tidying the handbook, and you'll come to understand the landscape as you do it!
    2. You could help 'lockdown' PWA app that will show various lockdown states for countries across the world helping people to find out if they can travel and at what restrictions https://github.com/Code-for-All/lockdown/
  5. Is there a way to search the handbook (or find out where links in the link drop end up)?
    1. Coming soon!
  6. What resources exist that show what surveillance systems are being put in place to track COVID-19? I(tracking movements on trains, buses, buildings, etc.) What expiration date do these surveillance systems have, if any?
    1. See https://coronavirustechhandbook.com/democracy
    2. See also https://coronavirustechhandbook.com/self-reporting
    3. https://coronavirustechhandbook.com/democracy
  7. A list of findings from any user research (scrappy is fine!) conducted? So that we can better understand problems people are facing as we build?
