This repository contains spatiotemporal data from many official sources for 2019-Novel Coronavirus beginning 2019 in Hubei, China ("nCoV_2019")
You may not use this data for commercial purposes. If there is a need for commercial use of the data, please contact Metabiota at email@example.com to obtain a commercial use license.
The incidence data are in a CSV file format. One row in an incidence file contains a piece of epidemiological data extracted from the specified source.
The file contains data from multiple sources at multiple spatial resolutions in cumulative and non-cumulative formats by confirmation status. To select a single time series of case or death data, filter the incidence dataset by source, spatial resolution, location, confirmation status, and cumulative flag.
Data are collected, structured, and validated by Metabiota’s digital surveillance experts. The data structuring process is designed to produce the most reliable estimates of reported cases and deaths over space and time. The data are cleaned and provided in a uniform format such that information can be compared across multiple sources. Data are collected at the time of publication in the highest geographic and temporal resolutions available in the original report.
This repository is intended to provide a single access point for data from a wide range of data sources. Data will be updated periodically with the latest epidemiological data. Metabiota maintains a database of epidemiological information for over two thousand high-priority infectious disease events. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in licensing the complete dataset.
Cumulative vs. Non-Cumulative Incidence
Reporting sources provide either cumulative incidence, non-cumulative incidence, or both. If the source only provides a non-cumulative incidence value, the cumulative values are inferred using prior reports from the same source. Use the CUMULATIVE FLAG variable to subset the data to cumulative (TRUE) or non-cumulative (FALSE) values.
Case Confirmation Status
The incidence datasets include the confirmation status of cases and deaths when this information is provided by the reporting source. Subset the data by the CONFIRMATION_STATUS variable to either TOTAL, CONFIRMED, SUSPECTED, or PROBABLE to obtain the data of your choice.
Total incidence values include confirmed, suspected, and probable incidence values. If a source only provides suspected, probable, or confirmed incidence, the total incidence is inferred to be the sum of the provided values. If the report does not specify confirmation status, the value is included in the "total" confirmation status value.
The data provided under the "Metabiota Composite Source" often does not include suspected incidence due to inconsistencies in reporting cases and deaths with this confirmation status.
Outcome - Cases vs. Deaths
The incidence datasets include cases and deaths. Subset the data to either CASE or DEATH using the OUTCOME variable. It should be noted that deaths are included in case counts.
Data are provided at multiple spatial resolutions. Data should be subset to a single spatial resolution of interest using the SPATIAL_RESOLUTION variable.
Information is included at the finest spatial resolution provided to the original epidemic report. We also aggregate incidence to coarser geographic resolutions. For example, if a source only provides data at the province-level, then province-level data are included in the dataset as well as country-level totals. Users should avoid summing all cases or deaths in a given country for a given date without specifying the SPATIAL_RESOLUTION value. For example, subset the data to SPATIAL_RESOLUTION equal to “AL0” in order to view only the aggregated country level data.
There are differences in administrative division naming practices by country. Administrative levels in this dataset are defined using the Google Geolocation API (https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/geolocation/). For example, the data for the 2019-nCoV from one source provides information for the city of Beijing, which Google Geolocations indicates is a “locality.” Beijing is also the name of the municipality where the city Beijing is located. Thus, the 2019-nCoV dataset includes rows of data for both the city Beijing, as well as the municipality of the same name. If additional cities in the Beijing municipality reported data, those data would be aggregated with the city Beijing data to form the municipality Beijing data.
Data sources in this repository were selected to provide comprehensive spatiotemporal data for each outbreak. Data from a specific source can be selected using the SOURCE variable.
In addition to the original reporting sources, Metabiota compiles multiple sources to generate the most comprehensive view of an outbreak. This compilation is stored in the database under the source name “Metabiota Composite Source.” The purpose of generating this new view of the outbreak is to provide the most accurate and precise spatiotemporal data for the outbreak. At this time, Metabiota does not incorporate unofficial - including media - sources into the “Metabiota Composite Source” dataset.
Data are collected by a team of digital surveillance experts and undergo many quality assurance tests. After data are collected, they are independently verified by at least one additional analyst. The data also pass an automated validation program to ensure data consistency and integrity.

The New York Times is releasing a series of data files with cumulative counts of coronavirus cases in the United States, at the state and county level, over time. We are compiling this time series data from state and local governments and health departments in an attempt to provide a complete record of the ongoing outbreak.
Since late January, The Times has tracked cases of coronavirus in real time as they were identified after testing. Because of the widespread shortage of testing, however, the data is necessarily limited in the picture it presents of the outbreak.
We have used this data to power our maps and reporting tracking the outbreak, and it is now being made available to the public in response to requests from researchers, scientists and government officials who would like access to the data to better understand the outbreak.
The data begins with the first reported coronavirus case in Washington State on Jan. 21, 2020. We will publish regular updates to the data in this repository.
United States Data
Data on cumulative coronavirus cases and deaths can be found in two files for states and counties.
Each row of data reports cumulative counts based on our best reporting up to the moment we publish an update. We do our best to revise earlier entries in the data when we receive new information.
Both files contain FIPS codes, a standard geographic identifier, to make it easier for an analyst to combine this data with other data sets like a map file or population data.
State-level data can be found in the us-states.csv file.
County-level data can be found in the us-counties.csv file.
In some cases, the geographies where cases are reported do not map to standard county boundaries. See the list of geographic exceptions for more detail on these.
This dataset contains COVID-19 data for the United States of America made available by The New York Times on github at https://github.com/nytimes/covid-19-data

The #COVID19 Government Measures Dataset puts together all the measures implemented by governments worldwide in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Data collection includes secondary data review. The researched information available falls into five categories:
Public health measures
Social and economic measures
Each category is broken down into several types of measures.
ACAPS consulted government, media, United Nations, and other organisations sources.
For any comments, please contact us at email@example.com
Please note note that some measures together with non-compliance policies may not be recorded and the exact date of implementation may not be accurate in some cases, due to the different way of reporting of the primary data sources we used.

Understanding gender is essential to understanding the risk factors of poor health, early death and health inequities. The COVID-19 outbreak is no different. At this point in the pandemic, we are unable to provide a clear answer to the question of the extent to which sex and gender are influencing the health outcomes of people diagnosed with COVID-19. However, experience and evidence thus far tell us that both sex and gender are important drivers of risk and response to infection and disease.
In order to understand the role gender is playing in the COVID-19 outbreak, countries urgently need to begin both collecting and publicly reporting sex-disaggregated data. At a minimum, this should include the number of cases and deaths in men and women.
In collaboration with CNN, Global Health 50/50 began compiling publicly available sex-disaggregated data reported by national governments to date and is exploring how gender may be driving the higher proportion of reported deaths in men among confirmed cases so far.
