Responsible Data Management during a crisis
Data is a necessary and critical part of COVID-19 prevention and response efforts. We need data in order to understand where the virus might appear next, who is most at risk, and where resources should be directed for prevention and response. However we need to ensure that we are managing that data responsibly so that we don’t use it to unnecessarily create fear or panic. We also need to be sure that we are not putting people at risk of privacy violations or misuse of personal data.
