What is it about?

• We analysed scientific research records on Covid-19 with computable statistical methods. • We present visualisations of interrelationships between scientific research data records on Covid-19. • We compare the coverage of research on Covid 19 mortality, immunity, and vaccine development by organisations and countries.

Why is it important?

Covid-19 was a global pandemic that required a global and integrated response of all national medical and healthcare systems. Covid-19 exposed the need for timely response and data sharing on fast spreading global pandemics.


- Chinese universities have not been leading on these topics historically. However, during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Chinese universities strongly dominated the research on these topics. - Despite the current political and trade disputes, we found strong collaboration in Covid-19 research between the US and China. - From the analysis on Covid-19 and vaccine, we discovered that although the USA is leading in volume of scientific research on Covid-19 vaccine, the leading 3 research institutions (Fudan, Melbourne, Oxford) are not based in the USA.
