Amid the disruption caused by COVID-19, Dataminr stands ready to help journalists. 

We understand that it is vital for newsrooms to have access to key information as quickly as possible so you can keep the public informed in the most accurate and timely manner. Many journalists are working from home without their newsroom toolkit such as the wires, so Dataminr provides a quick and easy solution to keep journalists informed of the latest news.

Governments and businesses around the world are making radical and last minute decisions in order to contain the outbreak of COVID-19 and Dataminr is at the forefront of surfacing this information and distributing it to over 600 newsrooms worldwide including CNN, Al Jazeera, The Daily Telegraph, Sky News and many more.

Our AI platform discovered early indicators of this epidemic on December 30th – 11 days before the first casualty. Find out more, here.

Dataminr is offering access to its alerting platform for 4 weeks, free of charge. In order to qualify for the offer, we will need a minimum of 5 users on your editorial team. 

To get your newsroom signed up, please email Dataminr’s Associate Director of News, Kirsten Dewar. A former journalist herself, she will be able to set your team up quickly and efficiently within 24hrs.
