Many national health institutions are also contributing to the project — together with the U.S., European, and Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the Hong Kong Department of Health, the Government of Canada and China’s National Health Commission.
The fight against coronavirus highlights programs for DLT

Blockchain generation has also been recommended as the most efficient means through which the United States’ stimulus package will be distributed — with a few proponents even providing that the U.S. launch a DLT-based totally “digital dollar.”
China has deployed blockchain in numerous programs to assist its efforts to fight COVID-19, the usage of DLT to music the virus’ spread, clinical records, and the distribution of clinical supplies and charity donations.
A Chinese journalist has also used Ethereum (ETH) to bypass censorship and put up an interview with a Wuhan-based medical doctor on the pandemic.
