The Coronavirus Census Collective

Tracking and predicting the path of a global pandemic

Leading researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are spearheading an international consortium—the Coronavirus Census Collective (CCC)—to track the spread of the novel coronavirus. Our global collaboration is an open-access platform whereby voluntarily reported data can be used to predict the location of future COVID-19 outbreaks. 

Data sources include self-reported health status surveys, results of diagnostic lab tests, and other static and real-time geospatial data. The CCC will serve as a hub for aggregating this large pool of information, and will provide relevant health care and governmental authorities with advanced notice on areas where outbreaks are anticipated.

The Coronavirus Census Collective
is a call to action.

We strongly encourage all leading academics, health organizations, and medical professionals around the world to join us, Prof. Eran Segal of the Weizmann Institute, Prof. Feng Zhan of MIT, and many other renowned scientists, in our efforts to slow the spread of this disease. Together, we can gather, analyze, and leverage a wealth of data that can be used to predict, respond to, and better understand the path of the coronavirus.
