March Coronavirus Open Thread

Someone on Hacker News had the idea of putting COVID patients on an airplane to increase air pressure (which is part of how ventilators work, due to Fick's law of diffusion).

Could this genuinely work?

The Danes wish to know more about the coronavirus

Hey, I'm a student at the University of Copenhagen in Bioinformatics/Computer Science and I'd like to help any way I can. If there's anything I can do to help let me know.

Any value in working on a website with resources on the necessary prerequisites for AI safety research? The best books and papers to read, etc. And maybe an overview of the key problems and results? Perhaps later that could lead to an ebook or online course.
