COVID-19 Mentions DB project

COVID-19 Mentions DB project was founded by OSINT enthusiasts on March 30, 2020.

Our goal is to collect all mentions to COVID-19 starting from December 1, 2019, from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in one database and provide access to this information for all researchers, journalists, and OSINT specialists. We want the information collection process to be as transparent as possible for everyone. That’s why we publish all methods of information collection, database structure and access methods on our GitHub page.

We do this project because we are not indifferent to the situation around COVID-19 all over the world and we want to help detect and prevent cases of data falsification, misinformation, fake news, and fraud.

You can tweet or email us with suggestions for features, help and other questions.
