Following the launch by the federal government of Canadian 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rapid Research Funding, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research issued the following message (https://cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/51890.html)
We would like to thank the 1,195 applicants who submitted their research ideas within a nine-day window; the diversity of research ideas and quality of the science was impressive. We would also like to thank the 150 individuals who considered our request and volunteered to put their lives and work on hold in order to serve as peer reviewers. This group of individuals reviewed 227 applications, completing 681 high quality reviews, within five days. The response we received from our call for reviewers was truly remarkable, and we are deeply appreciative of all who volunteered to serve in this capacity.
