Shout-out to all the creatives looking for a chance to show off their talented minds! The United Nations is giving you the chance to do so with the first ever open brief to help the world combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The United Nations has launched an open competition and all creatives are welcome to join and submit design informative works, that send accurate communication messages to the public in a bid to “flatten the curve” of the coronavirus pandemic.

Initiated by the United Nations (UN) through the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Global Call Out To Creatives is an open brief that asks for designers to create visual content showing the steps people have to follow to slow the pandemic.

“You have the power to change the world,” the UN says in its briefing document.

“We need help translating critical public health messages.”

The UN is seeking help from several creative solutions, in an attempt to reach wider audiences from different cultures. Saying that it’s looking for “magic” to bring creative twists and cultural quirks to life.

UN secretary general Antonio Guterres: “We are in an unprecedented situation and the normal rules no longer apply. We cannot resort to the normal tools in such unusual times.”

“The creativity of the response must match the unique nature of the crisis and the magnitude of the response must match its scale.” He added.

If you believe you’re up for the mission! Sign up now and show the UN what the Egyptians‘ minds have in store. Good luck to all!

According to a presidential advisor, Egypt will hit a peak of coronavirus infections in two weeks while another hypothetical model reviewed by the Minister of Scientific Research is suggesting that Egypt may start to record lower number of cases starting June 7th.

During the International Virtual Conference of Tanta University on Wednesday, Presidential Advisor for Health Affairs Mohamed Tag El-Din urged all institutions to join their forces against the novel COVID-19 virus.

The conference “Scientific Research Confronting COVID-19 and Future of the World after this Pandemic” ended on Thursday and discussed several stages of the virus.

Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdel Ghaffar stated earlier this month that cases might reach an estimate of 20K by May 28th and then gradually record lower numbers starting June 7th.

Just yesterday, Egypt recorded its highest number of coronavirus cases ever reaching more than 1,000 cases in just one day and 29 deaths.

Starting tomorrow, curfew regulations will be eased but we urge all citizens that with the expected peak to remain at home. Safe and sound.
