COVID-19 Data Science Resources

The Academic Data Science Alliance is working with partners to pull together data and data science resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a living list of resources and we welcome additions, suggestions, and collaborations. Please send additions, corrections, comments, and suggestions to us using this feedback form.

Please keep suggestions limited to research and data resources, avoiding opinion pieces and teaching resources.

Note that the resources listed here are provided as-is. Use your professional judgement and best practices to vet these resources before you use them for research and scientific communications.
