COVID-19 is caused by an RNA virus, so why not some new workunits for that virus?

In fact, I thought about this, too - but most medically relevant (and therefore pressing) investigations are already in the making by other well-funded researchers with competitive staff.

However, I am currently preparing for an update of the scientific applications which is mandatory for using the most recent data sets since several of the file formats have (unfortunately) recently been changed (to cause work overhead). The current apps will be kept because (unlike the most recent ones) these allow for additional future employment of ARM-based systems (which I have successfully tested in practice already, even on a 512 MB BeagleBoard). ARM makes special sense for virus-related analyses because their genomes are small enough to be potentially handled even on smartphones.
