New forum and daily updates to collaborate around covid-19 related issues

A new ProZ.com forum was created to allow for discussion and collaboration around issues related to the covid-19 pandemic.

Daily updates are also being posted to the forum, with information and resources for freelancers, by Andrew Morris.
