Is there anywhere a database that includes case-level information on COVID-19 cases?

Such data would typically include patient demographics and/or health information, location, time of onset/testing, and case outcomes.

Even data from one (or several) specific locations would be most helpful.

This question refers to case-level data. For aggregate data, see this question (COVID19 - Corona Virus data).

    Given the sensitivity of such PII and PHI under HIPAA and other patient/respondent privacy laws, it is unlikely to be available at case-level. If it ever does, it will more than likely be masked to some degree.

    Also looking for such data. I‘m interested in looking at mortality contingent on demographics and individual patient information.

    @Kotebiya sure, but even masked data (coarsened age, location, etc.) could be useful.

  • Postman (HTTP request & API testing tool) have and still are compiling a list of data sources requestable programmatically: covid-19-apis.postman.com not sure if it's enough for a proper answer in this site, though. You need to filter this, because there are not only clinical data but also "related" API, for instance the correct API endpoints to get the Twitter feed from WHO.

The Anthem XPRIZE Pandemic Alliance has pledged the availability of such de-identified data including data on previous outbreaks (i.e. swine-flu, influenza, SARS etc.) It is unclear, however, how soon the datasets will be released to researchers as it was just announced.

I've also found a fairly detailed dataset on github


This is quite exciting as it holds the following data

  • Demography: age,sex
  • Geographic: city, province, country, wuhan(0)_not_wuhan(1), latitude, longitude, geo_resolution, lives_in_Wuhan, location, country_new
  • Dates: date_onset_symptoms, date_admission_hospital, date_confirmation, date_death_or_discharge, travel_history_dates
  • Symptoms: symptoms
  • Other disease: chronic_disease_binary, chronic_disease
  • Exposure: travel_history_location, reported_market_exposure, travel_history_binary
  • Outcome: outcome,
  • Other: additional_information, source, sequence_available, notes_for_discussion, admin3, admin2, admin1, admin_id, data_moderator_initials

The downside, is that the data is of mixed quality, but it is critiqued by medical and data specialists. Some fields are completely left blank, but as a research source it could be a great place to start.

(This answer was moved from a more general question)

  • Fwiw, countries with hospitalization dates for > 100 patients, with last date (latestdata.csv from August 28): Argentina 7267 2020-06-08, China 1161 2020-03-05, Cuba 234 2020-04-29, France 100063 2020-06-03, Japan 124 2020-02-28, Netherlands 6731 2020-05-11, Singapore 280 2020-03-09

  • Interesting. So probably dependent upon hospitals in particular countries submitting data. Thx

South Korea has opened patient data. From what I glean from these tweets:


South Korea released medical history for all #COVID19 patients based on their insurance claims for the past five year:



The website is a bit cryptic. The sample data can be found in the "notice" menu under the "community" tab after logging in, but the data schema is in Korean. If you're serious about analyzing the data, I might be able to help with the translation...


„Raw data will not be available for download nor transmission. Researchers will use the sample data on the website (https://covid19data.hira.or.kr) to produce an analysis code and submit the code to HIRA through this website. In return, HIRA will deliver the analysis result values“

PDF user manual: https://rtrod-assets.s3.ap-northeast-2.amazonaws.com/static/tools/manual/COVID-19+website+manual_v2.1.pdf

It requires registration, and I think you have to do the analysis inside the platform.

Would like to add few more resources

There is a large body of research and data around COVID-19. Help the global community better understand the disease by getting involved on Kaggle.
