- Note: A major database corruption hit Wikidata on 6 April, also affecting connected sister projects such as Wikipedia. A fix has been implemented, but it may take a day or two for things to get back to normal, especially for logged-out users.
Special Report: COVID-19
Wikidata meetups, including all those funded by Wikimedia Foundation grants, have been cancelled, or moved online, for the foreseeable future.
Wikidata's WikiProject COVID-19 is up and running. Wikidata already has a large volume of relevant data. Wikidata Queries around the SARS-CoV-2 virus and pandemic is a free eBook to facilitate their use.
