Full-text corpus data


You can now download the Coronavirus Corpus for offline use. To date, this is about 1.18 billion 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 0 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 Sep 2021).

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.

For example, if you purchase both datasets on 15 October 2021, you would have the data from Jan 2010 - September 2021 (which was released on 1 Oct 2021; see the samples in #2 below), and an annual subscription would give you the data for one more year: October 2021 - September 2022.
