Nice to e-meet you. I am actually helping Médecins Sans Frontière (humanitarian NGO) to find relevant datasets or resources to organize its action related to COVID-19. Actually, we are trying to idenitify vulnerable populations needs (low-income, homeless, etc.). We are looking for high granularity information (ex: information by city-districts, not by provinces or States). I was wondering if you knew about datasets from where we could extract informations about vulnerable populations (mainly about where they are) and about their needs related to COVID-19. We are actually looking for informations related to the countries actually affected like Canada, USA or European countries, but also about countries in Africa or South America. (this first part is more urgent)
Also, I am wondering if you have heard about any digital humanitarianism initiative like information crowdsourcing platforms, real-time crisismapping or Who’s doieng what and where about the COVID-19 by countries. (this second part is less urgent)
