Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $10,000 to Against COVID-19 to support the expansion of its database of COVID-19 cases to include data from additional countries. The database tracks COVID-19 cases by transmission (local or imported), age, and other relevant characteristics, and is made available in a public dashboard for researchers, policymakers, and others working to limit the spread of the virus.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
