This article from the Harvard Business Review addresses the important role that data analytics has played in understanding the COVID-19 pandemic and some of the dangers associated with models and predictions coming from unvetted sources. In our globalized world, this pandemic has generated an incredible amount of data in a very brief amount of time. With all of this data, however, has come a slew of well-meaning but misguided attempts at analysis by individuals and companies without the appropriate expertise. Faulty models and predictions can lead to changes in public policy that could affect millions. This article recommends readers look for data that is generated by groups that are collaborative, open, and include health professionals and epidemiologists. “When making your own decisions, read closely, trust carefully, and when in doubt, look to the experts.”
