Realtime News and Informations about Covid-19 Measures taken from local authorities and counties

Innovative response

The National Portal of Citizenship for Counties And Parishes create a COVID-19 Dossier (creating an automation tool) that shows in real-time all the news published in the Counties Institutional Websites, aggregating and centralizing all that information in one page and disseminating that information in a large scale for the population in general on a 50k Daily Basis Newsletter.

Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

By this way, is more easier for the common Citizen to access the oficial information that is released from the institutions about the Covid-19 measures taken for their Region.

Our main Goal is to keep the Citizens informed about all the measures and additional information that keeps being published on a daily basis by the local authorities and other oficial institutions.

With this tool, Citizens can easily check for news updates and informations without digging in multiple websites, since all the information is in one Page only.
