The COVIPENDIUM was conceived as a living paper on the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). It provides a structured compilation of scientific data about the virus, the disease and its control. Its objective is to help scientists identify the most relevant publications on COVID-19 in the wealth of information that appears every day. It is also expected to foster a global understanding of disease control and stimulate transdisciplinary initiatives. This version dated October 20 is the final version of the document. It is a publication of the journal Transciplinary Insights.
