This collection supports the current and future management of the COVID-19 pandemic by capturing the COVID-19 status of care givers and care receivers by count. There is no directly identifiable personal data captured within this collection. Further de-identification will be applied before any dissemination of the data to prevent indirect identification of individuals.
The data will be able to use Covid-19 symptoms, testing, and diagnosis of care givers and care receivers alongside location, type of care provision, and key demographics of care receivers to identify trends.
