Welcome to the WikiProject COVID-19

COVID-19 Outbreak World Map.svg


A Wiki Project to collect Wikidata resources related to COVID-19 (Q84263196) View with Scholia and SARS-CoV-2 (Q82069695) View with Scholia. Resources may also relate to relevant epidemiological events like 2019–20 COVID-19 pandemic (Q81068910) View with Scholia.


The goals of this project are initially:

  • to create a data model for instances of disease outbreak (disease outbreak (Q3241045)).
  • monitor the quality of the pages about national outbreaks (listed in 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic by country and territory (Q83741704)).
  • curate the Wikidata items relevant for describing the outbreaks and the virus itself.
  • curate and improve the information on Wikidata about scientific articles regarding this coronavirus and related topics (similar to the Wikidata:WikiProject_Zika_Corpus).
  • think and develop ways to process these items to improve access to information (for example, via automated articles in languages that currently do not have pages about country-specific outbreaks)


A set of open tasks (feel free to add more) so editors can readily join the effort.

This section was moved to Wikidata:WikiProject_COVID-19/Tasks. There we can find open, partially closed and closed tasks, so everyone can help!

Important task:

  • Create Wikipedia Templates using COVID info on Wikidata!
