Four datasets are presented here. The original dataset is a collection of the COVID-19 data maintained by Our World in Data. It includes data on confirmed cases, and deaths, as well as other variables of potential interest for ten countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Israel, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The original dataset includes the data from the date of 31st December in 2019 to 31st May in 2020 with a total of 1.530 instances and 19 features. This dataset is collected from a variety of sources (the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, United Nations, World Bank, Global Burden of Disease, Blavatnik School of Government, etc.). After the original dataset is pre-processed by cleaning and removing some data including unnecessary and blank. Then, all strings are converted numeric values, and some new features such as continent, hemisphere, year, month, and day are added by extracting the original features. After that, the processed original dataset is organized for prediction of the number of new cases of COVID-19 for 1 day, 3 days, and 10 days ago and three datasets (Dataset-1, 2, 3) are created for that.
