In addition to financial support in the fight against COVID-19, IT companies utilized their expertise. Within the frames of the project, technological solutions were created: an interactive map of coronavirus spread in Lviv and the region and chatbots for medical staff. N-iX, Chatbots.Studio, and Bots Crew joined the campaign at this stage.
In cooperation with RIEL and the city administration, Lviv IT Cluster organized the testing of journalists. 82 journalists from Lviv who have been working during the quarantine were tested for Covid-19.
As of now, 6 million UAH has been raised as part of the project. A part of the funds was directed to the Insurance Stabilization Fund for medical staff in Lviv and the region, recently created by Lviv Regional State Administration. The Fund provides all healthcare practitioners who were infected while working with coronavirus patients with a lump sum payment. Also, Lviv IT Cluster purchased protective wear for all doctors who are working in PCR labs in Lviv. The suits will be handed over to the medical staff as soon as they are delivered.
During the 50 days of the campaign, 9858 people were tested in Lviv, with 125 suspected coronavirus cases detected throughout the testing. In Lviv region, a total of 15139 people were tested, out of which 16 suspected cases revealed. However, the virus outbreak was detected in the Davydiv united territorial community – 20 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 and 140 people who had contact with the patients were identified. At this point, Davydiv is quarantined with the entry and exit barred.
