Resolve to Save Lives Release Report on Tracking COVID-19 in the United States

Jul 23, 2020 | Kim Rodgers

After five months of attempting to control COVID-19, the United States has emerged as one the worst-performing countries in the world, with one in four of all global COVID deaths occurring in the US and a death rate that is among the world’s worst. The use of accurate, real-time data to inform decision-making is essential for infectious disease control. Unlike many other countries, the United States does not have standard, national data on COVID-19. The US also lacks standards for state-, county- and city- level public reporting of this life-and-death information.

Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of the global health organization Vital Strategies, joined public health leaders to release the first-ever comprehensive review of the status of COVID-19 information in the United States and outlined how states and communities can increase transparency about risk of COVID-19 and accountability for progress. The review identified 15 essential indicators, and evaluated COVID-19 data dashboards for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The report found critical gaps in the availability of information necessary to track and control COVID-19: across the 50 states, only 40% of essential data points are being monitored and reported publicly. More than half the essential information—strategic intelligence that leaders need to turn the tide against COVID-19—is not reported at all.
