Paediatric Neuroimaging researcher provides real-time case information on epidemiological data from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Maria Cobo, a DPhil student with the Paediatric Neuroimaging Group, is part of the Open COVID-19 Data Working Group, a response project coordinated by the Department of Zoology and the Oxford Martin School. It is an international team of volunteers curating data sources by hand and compiling the data in a standardised format. Uniquely, this format presents epidemiological data at an individual case level, which allows the extraction of detailed information on case demographics, travel histories and high resolution geographical distribution.

The cumulative results are updated daily, and can be viewed here: https://www.healthmap.org/covid-19/

Data fuelling the project are openly accessible here: https://github.com/beoutbreakprepared/nCoV2019/tree/master/latest_data

The description of the database and methods used was recently published in Scientific Data.

If you would like to take part in the project, please get in touch with Maria Cobo.
