Since the start of the pandemic, data on different countries’ case counts has been readily available. However, not all data is equally useful. In this post, Bernardo Gutierrez and Sabrina Li, from the Open COVID-19 Data Working Group and the Oxford Martin School, outline the need for much more detailed, open and accessible sharing to inform science and policymaking. The authors argue for open, accessible data sharing and highlight the need for data collection processes to be increasingly homogenised.
