Data & Analysis

Location for summaries and analysis of data related to n-CoV 2019, first reported in Wuhan, China on GitHub.

Brief description: We have collected publicly available information on cases confirmed during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Data were entered in a spreadsheet with each line representing a unique case, including age, sex, geographic information, history and time of travel where available. Sources were included as a reference for each entry. Data is openly available here: https://tinyurl.com/s6gsq5y and was last updated, January 31, 2020.

This database is being updated regularly and epidemiological information about Wuhan will be included over the coming days. Data are compiled from openly available sources only. We have tried to ensure accuracy of data compilation, but cannot take responsibility for any unintentional errors that may have occurred. Please email us if you have any additional information that would be useful to be include, or any suggested edits. Those information may include updates on recorded cases, especially demographics, clinical outcome, and details on the clusters in Wuhan and Guangdong.

Description of the data and some initial results are posted through Virological.org: http://virological.org/t/epidemiological-data-from-the-ncov-2019-outbreak-early-descriptions-from-publicly-available-data/337.
