This recorded panel, from AHCJ’s Summit on Infectious Disease in November, features experts in biosecurity, vaccines and health disparities.
They explain how different types of data inform the answers to questions in the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from why some communities are hit harder than others, to how likely a vaccine is to curb the pandemic. Each researcher highlights a data-driven tool that journalists can use in pandemic reporting.
