There is more you can do thank just staying indoors, you can put your CPU/GPU (computer) to use during its idle times for research.

In simple words, your computer's resources are used for medical research which generally does not have access to a supercomputer.

By keeping this software running we effectively create a giant global supercomputer.

Yes, your computer might get a tiny piece of a bigger task which might prove useful in finding a cure for COVID-19.

The program runs in the background - making use of free CPU / GPU time .. so you can continue to work while it runs in the background (may not hold true for some high-end design / any other computing work - in which case you can pause it)

With the ongoing COVID-19 Lockdown in progress, this is one of the many ways to contribute to by doing our bit. Not just for those unfortunate who are likely to be infected/have a major infection in the coming days.

All that said, why not make this a healthy game to see who contributes more. Make a team and contribute, not just for a potential cure for COVID-19 but a lot of other diseases.

Come be a part of team "Bengaluru" and contribute towards finding a cure for COVID-19 (& other issues)

a lot of projects are for other diseases
A GPU is better suited for these calculations
Even if you do not have a dedicated graphics card, your CPU has an integrated graphics which can probably of some use
