As Bill Gates recently asked in his LinkedIn article about COVID-19 'The First Modern Pandemic'  ”Is the disease seasonal or weather dependent?”

The world is waiting to see how weather could affect the spread of COVID-19 and we are thrilled to be making our weather api available, to support participants create solutions and insights from our data.

NASA Space App COVID-19 challenge is inviting coders, entrepreneurs, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, artists, and technologists to participate in a virtual hackathon.

“There’s a tremendous need for our collective ingenuity right now,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “I can’t imagine a more worthy focus than COVID-19 on which to direct the energy and enthusiasm from around the world with the Space Apps Challenge that always generates such amazing solutions.”
