Full-text corpus data


You can now download the Coronavirus Corpus for offline use. To date, this is about 404 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 569,401 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. You can also purchase an annual subscription, which will give you data for the next 12 months (probably about one billion words for the Coronavirus Corpus).

For example, if you purchase both datasets on 15 June 2020, you would have the data from 1 Jan 2020 - 31 May 2020 (which was released on 1 June 2020), and an annual subscription would give you the data for one more year: June 2020 - May 2021.

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.
