World / India & South America

The pandemic is accelerating.

+ 150 000 new cases / day (the most in a single day so far).

The world is in a new and dangerous phase.

Many people are understandably fed up with being at home.
Countries are understandably eager to open up their societies and economies.

But the virus is still spreading fast, it’s still deadly, and most people are still susceptible.

We call on all countries and all people to exercise extreme vigilance.

Continue maintaining your distance from others.
Stay home if you feel sick.
Keep covering your nose and mouth when you cough.
Wear a mask when appropriate.
Keep cleaning your hands.

We continue to call on all countries to focus on the basics:
find, isolate, test and care for every case.
Trace and quarantine every contact.

As the pandemic gathers pace, it’s the most vulnerable who will suffer the most.

All countries rich and poor have populations who are vulnerable to a higher risk of severe disease and death.

faster than the top 500 supercomputers combined.

The exaFLOP barrier was first broken in March of 2020 by the Folding@home project, used to fold proteins for medical research.[4][5]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exascale_computing
Further use grew from increased awareness and participation in the project from the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
On March 20, 2020 Folding@home announced via Twitter that it was running with over 470 native petaFLOPS[138], the equivalent of 958 x86 petaFLOPS.[139]

https://twitter.com/drGregBowman/status/1240408735190847489
By March 25 it reached 768 petaFLOPS, or 1.5 x86 exaFLOPS, making it the first exaFLOP computing system.[140]
