LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – GIDEON Informatics, the global online network for infectious diseases and epidemiology, is now the only resource for comprehensive global data on the prevalence and seroprevalence of COVID-19.
The GIDEON database identifies real-time COVID-19 prevalence and seroprevalence data and aggregates all studies into interactive tables. Users can easily sort this data by city, percentage of prevalence to seroprevalence and population sectors (health workers, students, dialysis patients and others). GIDEON now contains 1,000 COVID prevalence and seroprevalence surveys, from all reporting countries.
GIDEON updates this information daily, and there is no other source for this type of data. For convenience, the GIDEON database links these lists of prevalence and seroprevalence surveys to their primary sources.
Dr Stephen A. Berger MD, infectious disease expert and co-founder of GIDEON Informatics said: âPeriodic surveys of the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA and antibodies in key populations are invaluable for monitoring the actual extent of the current pandemic. . About 1,000 COVID-19 prevalence and seroprevalence surveys have been published to date. However, health workers and public health officials in the field do not have the information they need at their fingertips. They often have to sift through a largely disjointed collection of individual studies that are only relevant to a specific time period, geographic region, occupation, or other parameter.
The GIDEON resource for surveys can prove invaluable to public health officials, researchers and clinicians trying to stay ahead of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its mutants. Today, as work, school and international travel re-open, monitoring prevalence and seroprevalence surveys around the world can help prevent the next pandemic.
GIDEON Informatique is a One-stop-shop for infectious disease data. Users can find interactive maps of over 25,000 current and historical infectious disease outbreaks dating back to the early 1900s. The database is updated daily and contains epidemiological and clinical information on over 360 infectious diseases , more than 2000 pathogens and 420 drugs and vaccines. There are 23,600 country-specific notes on the status of country-specific diseases and details of events leading to the cross-border spread of infections. Clinicians can make differential diagnoses and review treatment options. Researchers can also access the GIDEON database using their recently released GIDEON R package.
