Among the latest in CNI’s contributions towards COVID-19 response, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, the Centre for Networked Intelligence at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) are collaborating with Semantic Web India, a private technology firm based in Bangalore, to continue the efforts of a critical COVID-19 Data Website.
www.covid19india.org offered a comprehensive view on the pandemic across India by providing data on confirmed cases, active and recovered cases, tests and fatalities. The portal also recently started showing vaccination administration status for single-dose and fully vaccinated.
The website, which till now was run by volunteers based on a crowd-sourcing model, provided valuable data to the public as well as researchers studying the pandemic. The organisers recently announced that they would stop their operations beyond 31st October 2021.
This new initiative of these Academic Institutions and Semantic Web India will now continue updating the data from 1st November 2021 and make it available at www.incovid19.org.
