  1. NHS will work with big tech giants to help predict where ventilators, hospital beds, and medical staff will be most in need. “The goal is to help health chiefs model the consequences of moving resources to best tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Three US tech firms are aiding the effort – Amazon, Microsoft and Palantir – as well as London-based Faculty AI.”
  2. You can get a 90-day trial for Final Cut Pro X now and soon you’ll be able to get it for Logic Pro X as well. “We hope customers who are home and looking for something new to master will try out these free trials,” reads Apple’s announcement.
  3. The US has now the most coronavirus cases worldwide.
  4. Airbnb asks its hosts to provide free rentals to first responders. “Update: 12,000 hosts have now opened up their homes to COVID-19 responders. Thank you, hosts.”
  5. Amazon might deliver COVID-19 test kits globally. “Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos posted to Instagram on Thursday to say he’d held a video call with the director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. In his post, Bezos listed the ways Amazon is mobilizing to help WHO in its response to the coronavirus pandemic.”
