About the “Rewa” pages

The “Rewa pages” are a collection of brief and factual information useful for living in lockdown with the SARS-CoV-2 virus (“coronavirus”) in McLeod Ganj India, written by the people living here.

The intention is to update daily or more often as needed.

All information is checked for reputable source, with link given to source. No hearsay, gossip, or scare-mongering.

Where are the “Rewa pages”?

On the Web at https://webwalker.to/rewa/

There is no Facebook, Twitter, etc. of this Rewa — the information is available to all, and your privacy is not compromised.

How to keep up?

Latest updates will always be posted on the main Rewa page and on “tometaxu” on Twitter and Mastodon

Why and how?

“Rewa” is Tibetan for “hope”, and is also the name of the building where we live in McLeod Ganj, India.

I started this for the people in the house, as we had been randomly messaging each other individually — which didn’t lead to efficient information-sharing! Hopefully here we (you too!) can all more easily share information about the rapidly changing situation with Coronavirus, living under lockdown, health, etc.

Started thinking, it maybe be useful to other people as well — sooooo — here we go, thu 26 mar 2020 — we’re live!

Who is doing this?

This Web space is a joint effort by all people involved. See how to send info for the site at the Rewa contact page.
