The “Citizen Observatory for COVID-19” (Span. Observatorio Ciudadano COVID-19 Nicaragua) is an organization that seeks to monitor and follow the evolution of the pandemic in Nicaragua, where the government is not systematically monitoring the cases related to COVID-19.

Mission and Purpose

The “Citizen Observatory for COVID-19” (Span. Observatorio Ciudadano COVID-19 Nicaragua) was implemented as a citizen response against the lack of transparency in the information provided by the national authorities regarding the pandemic in Nicaragua. Its purpose is to fill the informational gap on COVID-19 data, since government authorities are not systematically monitoring the evolution of the pandemic.
