    Do you want to share your technology for free in the fight against COVID-19?

    Our days are characterized by a national and global effort to fight the COVID-19 virus. As long as we do not have vaccines, medicines or other solutions that can defeat the pandemic, countries around the world resort to curfew restrictions, guidelines for hand washing and social distancing to keep the virus from spreading.

Recently, giants such as Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and IBM announced that they are joining the initiative.
