What is Contest Against Corona (CAC)

Contest Against Corona is an educational, gamified quiz that aims to inform citizens & health workers in a playful and engaging way about salient Covid-19 topics to support the dissemination of accurate information on Covid-19 in low- and middle-income countries. The aim is to help battle the pandemic & ‘infodemic’. Topics include basic information on the virus dynamic and protective behaviors, but also:

Vaccinations

types of vaccines, effectiveness, access

Myths

common myths & conspiracy theories

Trustworthy sources

national & international, up-to-date & reliable sources

Mutation

dynamics & implications of the new Covid Variation

Participants can play only a few levels or many levels; they will be eligible for various prizes and participation certificates depending on their total score. The content is developed and verified by Health Focus and GOPA who offer specialized expertise on this topic.

The first version of CAC was launched in November 2020 and was very successful — more than 100,000 people in 54 countries accessed the game.
