Today we can say that open-source is the basis of almost everything that envolves technology and science. From an open-source library and data availability to a gigantic company that started as an open-source project, it helps the community interact, help each other and find people that are interested in making the world a better place by making knowledge available to everyone.
Information about the world (from the polar cap reduction to COVID-19 data) has shown it's importance more than ever with the pandemic. We have been able to reach out to other people telling them to stay home and giving them a way to see what was going on in the world. Even in such troubled times, open-source still helps people connect and stay safe. The COVID-19 pandemic made us realize that information about it should be filtered and interpreted correctly. A way found by the community to keep everyone up-to-date was to provide free information with the latest data and news, as well as providing the necessary resources for it.
Speaking of providing resources, there are two links down below where you can read and check out data about COVID-19 in convenient formats, all made available to you by the power of open-source. It goes to show that open-source is fully related to how we can make the world a better place.
