Several institutes have come together for this and the initiative is started by Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), and Tata Memorial Centre (TMC).
This website also named ‘CovidGyan’ serves as a hub to bring together a collection of resources in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. These resources are generated by public supported research institutions in India and associated programs. The content presented here relies on the best available scientific understanding of the disease and its transmission.
“Apart from being an authentic source of information, It would also aid as a ‘go-to’ repository of information regarding COVID-19. It is designed with multi-faceted aspects to ‘right information’ through talks from eminent scientists in audio/podcast formats, infographics, posters, videos, FAQs and mythbusters, and even links to scientific papers,” as per a statement.
Meanwhile, student volunteers of two major Bengaluru-based scientific institutions – Institute for Stem Cell Science and Regenerative Medicine (InStem) and National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) — have set up several internal communication channels and help groups for their campus community to address fears and anxieties over COVID 19 pandemic.
The facilities include a campus email help desk, a campus messaging service, a phone helpline, and a peer support line, which is likely to stay for the campus in the years to come. “The group of young researchers has also set up various volunteer groups to address student needs during the lockdown, as well as an ongoing effort to match specific research/programming/design skills with various short term and long term scientific challenges,” it added.
