Hi, my name is David, DAVID19. I am here to make you an offer that you won’t be able to refuse, but first let me tell you a little bit about myself, since many people are asking about my appearance and background.
I could say that I’m coming from nowhere and from everywhere at the same time. I also have traits from different cultures and corners of the world. But more importantly: I have learned to accept who I am and above all, 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.
In recent months, a sinister enemy has taken control of our lives. He is committed to taking over the whole world, to end lives, to close cities and entire countries, and to force us to confine ourselves to our homes, even giving up our daily routines. I’m talking about an invisible and powerful adversary: COVID-19. A virus that was unknown a few months ago, is now giving us a lot to learn from.
I know that many are fearful, I can see the concern in their faces as the virus spreads among us. But do not fret, because together we will defeat our enemy. That is exactly what I come to offer here.
Why you are important
To take down COVID-19, we must know the weapons we have and how to use them effectively. After hours of hard work and research by the alliance, we have come to the firm conclusion that the best strategy to win is not to attack COVID-19 with physical force, but to defeat it with intelligence and by taking as few hits as possible; and that the best defense and our most powerful weapon in this battle is… information.
Information is undoubtedly our opponent’s greatest vulnerability. For this reason, we created DAVID19 , a digital tool that will allow us to collect information in the fight against the pandemic in Latin America and the Caribbean. Basically, our application will allow each of us to share key data that will gradually make the enemy visible on a map and, therefore, weaken him. All this, anonymously, using our mask of heroes to protect our identity.
How will we win?
DAVID19 will integrate information from each user, such as quarantine or de-confinement phases, symptoms, habits, among others, to generate risk situation maps in real time, using blockchain technology to guarantee privacy and data protection. This way, COVID-19 becomes a visible opponent and our information will allow authorities to make key decisions to reopen our cities or send more life-saving inputs. This will be our weapon like no other, and it needs us all.
By using this app and joining the cause, we all become 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.
