I have come across several useful resources/papers/articles. I hope these might also be useful to anyone who is interested in getting more info or working towards designing some solution for this pandemic. While there is a strong need for PPEs and Ventilators, a lot of disruption has taken place  in people's lives at various levels. Out of many challenges that are arising in these testing times, I

feel covering a breadth of issues can help subdue the adverse impacts in someway. This list is a work-in-progress towards bringing awareness, and, at the same time clues, for people to identify various challenges that they might be able to address. Stay safe...
