A massive global database aggregating useful information on Covid-19, provided voluntarily and anonymously by real patients from around the world. Our goal is to provide scientists, medical researchers and government officials valuable structured data on important medical, social and environmental variables to help detect patterns and better understand SARS-CoV-2.

Why?

Despite international mobilisation, we know relatively little about the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Our understanding differs from one country to another and although we have plenty of raw data from different government and medical sources, they tend to be heterogenous and not easily comparable. This makes analysis difficult.

What we need is one single massive global database on information about Covid-19 patients with a homogenous structure. And we need to get this information in a transparent way that respects individual and civil liberties and safeguards privacy.

Objectives

  • Collect empirical data from Covid-19 patients from all affected regions
  • Detect and identify patterns by analysing a large pool of structured data
  • Make data openly available to scientists, medical workers and governments for analysis (complementary to existing data from hospitals and nursing homes)
  • Get this data without resorting to any nefarious tracking by asking people to volunteer only information they are comfortable sharing publicly, excluding any and all personally identifiable information
