We see the power of data in a pandemic in real-time.
The lessons we are receiving from this experience will inform how we monitor future pandemics by using the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data. National or Global apps could result in better early warning systems because they could report and track who is showing symptoms of an outbreak. GPS data could then be used to track where exposed people have been and who they have interacted with to show contagion. Any of these efforts require careful implementation to safeguard an individual’s privacy and to prevent the abuse of the data but offer huge benefits to more effectively monitor and tackle future pandemic.
