Hi, welcome to the CitizenMe COVID-19 community. This is an open research project, designed by-and-for the people, to help us all share information and tackle COVID-19, together. 

The knowledge shared here is conducted in real-time on the CitizenMe platform. 250,000 people around the world with the CitizenMe app share data, information and answers to questions anonymously. The results are shared openly with Institutions, health organisations, researchers, journalists, charities – and with you the general public. 

We also provide links to other apps and services which are also helping to fight the crisis by helping us all to share open digital knowledge.

If you have questions you’d like to see answers to, or insights you think could be revealed from the data, we’d love to hear from you. Comment below or email us at

We believe that, together, we can tap into the “wisdom of crowds” to fight Coronavirus faster, better and save lives. 

The CitizenMe COVID-19 community is an open-data research project designed to enable the worlds citizens to share real-time opinions and data about COVID-19 with the institutions fighting the Epidemic. All data gathered is shared anonymously with health services and researchers, governments, journalists, charities – and with the general public. If you would like a full, anonymised copy of the data, or have open research that you’d like us to conduct, please email us at:

StJohn founded CitizenMe with the aim to take on the biggest challenge in the Information Age: helping digital citizens gain control of their digital identity. Personal data has meaning and value to everyone, but there is an absence of digital tools to help people realise its value. With CitizenMe, StJohn aims to fix that. With a depth of experience digitising and mobilising businesses, StJohn aims for positive change in the personal information economy. Oh… and he loves liquorice.
