COVID-19 Open Data Serbia
A specialized subdomain on Covid-19, namely covid19.data.gov.rs, was launched on the national Open Data Portal (data.gov.rs).
Data sets include daily data on infected persons by municipalities in Serbia, the number of persons who are in mandatory self-isolation, the number of hospitalized, tested, and deceased individuals, the number of persons who are on a respirator, as well as the number of those who have been cured. Information on special COVID-19 outpatient clinics, their working hours and contact information is also available on the Portal.
Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact
During times of crisis, it is vital for governments to provide accurate, useful and up-to-date information. Publishing statistics about the outbreak helps people make informed decisions about their daily routines, builds public trust, as well as enables public authorities to act decisively to flatten the curve. To make machine-readable data sets suitable for further analysis and “reading” by the general population (not only machines), we have visualized the data so that citizens can follow the reports themselves.
