COVID is the name caused by a specific strain of the coronavirus and is the seventh identified coronavirus. It was first reported in December in Wuhan City, China. These symptoms include a fever, cough, and shortness of breath that may appear between 2 to 14 days after exposure.
Due to its range of symptoms and severity, it has been hard to track the virus. Open data and COVID Since awareness on COVID began growing across the world, more health datasets have been published as open for re- users to utilise in creating platforms and interactive maps, for example, to support citizens in taking steps to stay healthy, like avoiding risk areas.
Examples can be seen in national open data portals and the health ministries across Europe. The download icon in the bottom right corner also allows the user to download the image, or the raw data behind it.
This can be seen in the image below. The agency has shared all of their COVID data on GitHubincluding national Liber South of France Dating Site, provinces data, regions data, summary cards, and areas.

These datasets are already available for adding APIs and English translations. This publication demonstrates — indirectly — the importance of data not only to be available, but also discoverable. Without taking anything off the merit of such a valuable initiative, it was likely published in a rush to support the emergency and, at the moment of writing, the dataset unfortunately cannot be found on the Italian national data portal and — as a consequence — is not listed on the EDP either, as we depend on publication on the national portals.
The GitHub repository also cannot be found on mainstream web search engines such as Google.
Thus, some steps still need to be taken to aid the discoverability of datasets. Finally, it is important to highlight that not everybody is qualified to correctly interpret such specialistic data.
As much as the work of EDP and of the Liber South of France Dating Site data teams in civil service will keep empowering you, please do not discard expert advice and the mainstream official news channels for information on the medical emergency.
