Betreff: [rda-covid19] Ontolologies/subjects for COVID data discovery?
We’re looking to establish a short list of subjects/concepts/topics to
be used for COVID-19 data discovery.
This can be directly related to COVID (like cases, deaths, tests,
policies) or around contextual data (demographics, labor force, business
services closure/reopening, etc.). Anyone working on this or can point
us to potential resources?

The attempt to make heaven on earth invariably produces hell. It leads to intolerance. It leads to religious wars, and to the saving of souls through the inquisition. (Karl Popper)
