COVIDNOW: Why We Need Open Data

We look at the newly-launched COVIDNOW website, and how it will help with pandemic efforts. First, we hear from a data scientist who's been independently tracking Covid-19 data, on what he thinks of the new site. Then, we discuss the importance of design when relaying complex information. Finally, we talk about the benefits of making this data accessible to everyone.
