Also more over time - people getting sick - then first friends recovering - found it very uplifting In an international group and discussing on telegram and zoom calls what it is like Also working on some other projects - especially around working with blood plasma and antibody therapy using plasma from recovered patients. Finally Aitor, one of our group, mentioned someone asking why there was not one yet in Spain....
COVID-19 spreads on an exponential level - we want to spread our solidarity message even faster!

Social media network and community to connect recovered, recovering, and the concerned
How we built it
Focus on existing social platforms with many users: Facebook - slightly older generation Instagram - young generation, more graphical Linkedin - for employers
Challenges we ran into
Getting alignment around what we would actually do - and it was great to have Mart turn ideas into visuals and Julia to put things into place
Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned
There is definitely a need We need to support different languages WE can gather content from other recovered stories to keep things animated We need to seed the community with questions
