Flattening the curve, one datapoint at a time
Flatten is a not-for-profit that focuses on creating tools to collect syndromic surveillance data to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
What we’ve done
We ran a syndromic surveillance website in Canada, flatten.ca The anonymised dataset will be available soon.
We partnered with the administration in Mogadishu (the capital of Somalia) to run a census-style survey. Hundreds of volunteers there collected vital data about the symptoms and comobodities of over 100,000 Somalis.
