Tracking the spread and forecasting infection rates
We are providing federal and state health agencies with COVID-19 data tracking and forecasting to support decisions around Australia’s outbreak response.
Supporting Australia's pandemic response
Mask Testing Facility
We've opened Australia’s first accredited single-use surgical face mask testing facility. The facility enables manufacturers to test their products to Australian and international standards in Australia and supply healthcare workers with this vital piece of protective equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic, and beyond.
Telehealth and technology during COVID-19
As the world slows down, the demand for technological solutions has gone viral. Digital solutions have quickly shifted from a slow adoption path to a record pace of uptake. But none is this is new to CSIRO having been at the forefront of eHealth solutions and technological innovation and this is also helping the response to COVID-19.
COVID-19 face masks
We're testing the performance of advanced materials produced by local manufacturers to boost the supply of medical equipment needed in Australia's fight against COVID-19.
We're using 3D printing to produce two designs of protective face shields for Queensland healthcare workers.
