About the platform

OpenCovid-Peru was a project created by six Peruvian scientists and engineers to centralize diverse information from different sources on the pandemic in Peru. Through a hackathon carried out hand in hand with the BCP, seven new volunteers joined the project and took the renewal of the web interface as their first goal.

“In this new design, the web is segmented for two large audiences: those who have emergency needs because they have a relative or they themselves are sick with COVID- 19, and who wants to be informed about the pandemic “commented Anel Vasquez, leader of the website renovation team.
