It launched the call on the activities from government, universities, research institutes and enterprises, in term of space observation, data supporting, information mining and epidemic analysis. At present, more than 15 agencies of China GEO have made positive response, and carried out lots of contributions such as the emergency observing, data sharing, as well as decision support through spatial analysis, risk analysis, and social-economical impact analysis. For example, there were 120 times of observing by more than 30 Chinese satellites have been arranged for monitoring Wuhan City during its 76-days lockdown. These data and knowledge have played important role on the scientific cognitive and decision-making to response COVID-19.
