In the race to fight Covid19, data is perhaps the most crucial asset. In the short-term, it can dramatically help governments and other organisations assess the progression of the pandemic and adjust their logistical responses (e.g., planning hospital beds, deciding on social distancing measures etc..). In the medium and long run, data may also help assess populations’ general feelings and emotions. This data may, in turn, help identify and tackle potential negative byproducts of the pandemic (e.g., anxiety, depressions).
