The COVIDxNOW Global Community

As COVID-19 spreads rapidly throughout the world, the COVIDxNOW community is working together to create solutions. We are not alone in this, but we are uniquely diversified and we are committed to creating and building connections that will save lives around the world.

COVIDxNOW is a network of leaders and innovators working on solutions through the COVD-19 pandemic. By building this network we have discovered that connections across geographies, industries and areas of expertise are essential if we are going to come through this.
