COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — In just nine months, more than one million people have died from the coronavirus worldwide.

Now, the University of Maryland is teaming up with Facebook to try to get a better understanding of the global impact of the pandemic.


People in nearly every country will log on to Facebook and be invited to take a survey put together by University of Maryland researchers.

It asks questions about things like COVID symptoms, testing availability and economic impacts.

The hope is, responses will give researchers a much-needed global view of this pandemic, with information about where it’s growing and where the next hot spot could develop.

For the latest information on coronavirus go to the Maryland Health Department’s website or call 211. You can find all of WJZ’s coverage on coronavirus in Maryland here.
