Special Announcements (

To help with the many special announcements with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, released vesion 7.0. This wikibase instance is a first attempt to create a wikibase to harvest special announcements that follow the profiles.

This wikibase is initially populated with this script.

It is a first draft and some design choices were made since some design patterns used in do not exist in Wikibase. e.g. one property allowing both values of type URL and WebContent.

Where multiple datatypes were assigned, this wikibase now uses the data type wikibase-item, where the item itself will capture the url.


An example announcement has been created from the example used by about Eastergate School
