You can now
Coronavirus Corpus for offline use. To date, this is about 963 million words
of data that you would have on your own machine. The
Coronavirus Corpus contains data on the medical, social,
cultural, and economic impact of the coronavirus
(COVID-19) in 126,615
texts from online magazines and newspapers in 20
different English-speaking countries from 1 Jan 2020 to
the current time. Most importantly, the
corpus grows by 3-5 million words of data each day. This translates to about
90-110 million words each month (for example, there are
more than 100 million words for ).
When you purchase the
full-text data from the Coronavirus Corpus, you get all of the data up
through the previous month, as well as data for the next 12 months.
In other words, with one license you get all of the data
up to the present time, as well as the next year of
data. This is different that the
NOW Corpus, where these
would be two separate licenses.
For example, if you
purchase both datasets on 15 April 2021 you would have
the data from 1 Jan 2020 - 31 March 2021 (which was
released on 3 April 2021), as well as the data for one more year:
Apr 2021 - Mar 2022.
Note also that the monthly
updates will be released at the beginning of the
following month. You will be notified by email as soon
as the update is available, and you will have ten days
to download the data.
