#HackfromHome - an anti-viral virtual hackathon.

We’re giving people a chance to respond with action, working together to improve the lives of everyone affect by the Coronavirus. Our goal is to band together to help communities, patients, and their families better using what we know best - technology.

If possible, these ideas should preserve the privacy of individuals through the use of Personal Data Accounts. For more information on Personal Data Accounts read this.



Self-organized local delivery

During the pandemic, people have to follow the quarantine measures to stop the spread of covid-19, they need to organize their shopping in a neighborhood for families and vulnerable people. Our objective is to reduce the number of people going out to the shops for food, to help get essentials to the vulnerable during quarantine, help comply with the government-enforced restriction. Those who are not vulnerable or symptomatic can offer their assistance by becoming a Delivery Angel in their local community. MVP is about to be running.

    Great idea. Make sure to consider participation of people who do not have mobile phones or computers. Texting works though. You might also consider connecting with SafeLivin.

    I note that during lockdown there is a lot less traffic on the streets. So I think it's an ideal time for driverless delivery. It would be good if an entire container could be dropped off near a community, and then picked up the following day. Delivery Angels could then do the last mile delivery to homes.

    During normal non-lockdown times the same techniques could be used over night using quiet electric vehicles.
