Who is DAVID19?

Who am I?

Hi, my name is David. DAVID19.I could say that I come from nowhere and from everywhere at the same time. I have traits from different cultures and corners of the world, which is why I wouldn’t be able to describe my appearance clearly.

But more importantly: I have learned to accept who I am, and I am sure of who I want to be: the example that inspires the world to contribute to the end of COVID-19.

I am DAVID19, but you can be too.

Our challenge and your role

I know that many are fearful, I can see the concern in their faces as the virus spreads among us.But let’s try to stay calm and cooperate as much as possible. Together we will defeat our enemy.

That’s exactly my proposal, to join forces to bring down COVID-19. After long days of work and research, I have come to the firm conclusion that the best strategy to attack is not through the use of physical force, but with intelligence. Our most powerful weapon, our best defense, is information.

For this reason, we have created DAVID19, a digital tool that will allow us to gather information in the fight against the pandemic in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through this application, each of us will be able to share key data in a secure and private way, gradually debilitating our enemy and uncovering its coordinates in real time through a map.

DAVID19 will integrate in the map the information from each user, such as quarantine or de-confinement phases, symptoms, and habits, to generate risk situation maps in real time, using blockchain technology to guarantee privacy and data protection.

Thanks to your information and that of other users, authorities will be able to make important decisions to reopen our cities or send more supplies to save lives.

This is why we need all of you. You have in your hand the possibility of becoming DAVID19. Our success will depend on individual decisions, and on your commitment as a global citizen, as a hero of the world. If we are all DAVID19, we can beat our Goliath.

My favorite quote

We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.
