Periodic surveys of the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 and antibodies in key populations are invaluable to track the true extent of the current pandemic.”
— Dr. Stephen A. Berger, MD
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2021 / -- GIDEON Informatics, the Global Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology Online Network is now the only resource for comprehensive global COVID-19 prevalence and seroprevalence data.

The GIDEON database identifies COVID-19 prevalence and seroprevalence data in real-time and collates all studies into interactive tables. Users can easily sort these data by city, percentage of prevalence vs. seroprevalence, and population sectors (healthcare 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. As an added convenience, the GIDEON database links these prevalence and seroprevalence survey lists to their primary sources.

Dr. Stephen A. Berger MD, Infectious Diseases expert, and co-founder of GIDEON Informatics stated, “Periodic surveys of the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA and antibodies in key populations are invaluable to track the true extent of the current pandemic. Approximately 1,000 COVID-19 prevalence and seroprevalence surveys have been published to date. However, healthcare workers and Public Health officials in the field do not have the information they need at their fingertips. They often have to wade through a largely disjointed collection of individual studies which are relevant only to a specific timeframe, geographical region, profession, or other parameter.”

The GIDEON resource for surveys can prove invaluable for public health officials, researchers, and clinicians trying to stay ahead of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its mutants. Now, as work, school, and international travel open up once again, monitoring prevalence and seroprevalence surveys from around the world can help prevent the next pandemic.

GIDEON Informatics is a one-stop reference shop for data on infectious diseases. Users can find interactive maps of 25,000+ current and historical infectious disease outbreaks dating back to the early 1900s. The database is updated daily and contains epidemiological and clinical insights on over 360 infectious diseases, 2000+ pathogens, and 420 drugs and vaccines. There are 23,600 country-specific notes on the country-specific status of diseases and details on events leading to the cross-border spread of infections. Clinicians can perform differential diagnoses and review treatment options. Researchers can also access the GIDEON database using their recently-released GIDEON R package.
