Introduction: The 21st century is marked by the exponential era of data available daily on the web. This era of knowledge is characterized by the pressing need for new technologies to manage the brutal amount of data. In health, it is no different: scientific and technological information needs to be identified, extracted, treated and made available the essential information for decision making. The objective is to contribute to knowledge management in times of Big Data in health with COVID-19. Outline: The work was carried out using a retrospective analysis of the big health data opened for COVID-19. Results: They demonstrate the great worldwide effort in science and technology for the topic in question. The Medline database features over 36,000 articles available. In the European Patent Office base there are 2,871 family of patents, with 3 patents being made available and the pharmaceutical company Pfizer leading the technological research. Implications: It is concluded that the translation of knowledge has been occurring in an urgent way, since, although there is no vaccine or medicine for the cure so far, never in history has there been so much available volume of science and technology in such a small space of time. time, generating scientific and technological production for the advancement of science.
