Volunteer your time

The Global fight against COVID-19 requires all communities to work together. To greater our knowledge of this novel virus, the data needs to be analysed fast and efficiently. You could help. Links below are categorised into:

  • Datasets
  • Research opportunities



Royal Society DELVE Initiative - DELVE Global COVID-19 Dataset

This openly-licensed research-ready dataset consolidates country-level COVID-19 data from multiple sources. Prepared for the DELVE Initiative by Avishkar Bhoopchand, Andrei Paleyes, Kevin Donkers, Nenad Tomasev, Ulrich Paquet.

For up to 170 countries, the dataset contains:

  • cases
  • deaths
  • tests
  • non-pharmaceutical interventions
  • excess mortality
  • mobility statistics
  • weather patterns
  • and other metadata


Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases/COVID-19, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UK

Data sets and latest research and interactive applications

Four streams of work at CMMID:

  1. Current patterns of transmission
  2. Severity of COVID-19
  3. Control measures
  4. Early outbreak dynamics
