At the beginning of 2020, we have come to a realization that the COVID-19 is also part of the cross boundaries issues that we need to solve. The COVID-19 outbreak, now classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, represents yet another hazard to the wellbeing of humanity, one that threatens communities of all race, nationality, religion, and creed. An unprecedented global event.
The Novel Coronavirus, designated COVID-19, is an infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered virus from the large coronavirus family, whose members include MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).
As the virus began to spread to different parts of the world, we took note on how it affects wide-range of issues, from economic development, social welfare, to psychological health, and international cooperation. As a response to this issue, we have launched a web page specifically for addressing COVID-19 related issues. Researching its impacts toward global societies, cities, economy and resilience would be our main focus.
As a think tank, RDI is committed and determined to contribute our knowledge and expertise in responding to this pandemic. We will explore several research topics on COVID-19 that are stated on the right hand side of this website. We are also accepting new interns from various academic backgrounds who are interested in writing about this subject.
