Use of Open Government Data in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak



The OECD Secretariat, through the Digital Government and Data Unit, and the NYU’s The GovLab are calling for evidence on the release and use of Open Government Data (OGD) in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We would like to hear from you about what data are being released and how different actors (such as entrepreneurs, media, researchers, CSOs, and the public sector) are innovating with them to support countries’ policies and actions.

This is a live and open repository, so please feel free to add and edit evidence that helps us understand how countries are using OGD in this case.  The repository which will reflect the different uses of data as we move through the COVID-19 outbreak.
