L’image qui revient le plus souvent dans les médias est celle de l’évolution du nombre de cas de coronavirus, dans un pays ou dans plusieurs, comme le fait le graphique du Financial Times ci-haut, remis à jour quotidiennement. Cela permet de comparer les pays entre eux, mais c’est une information incomplète. 1) S’attarder au nombre de décès ou d’hospitalisations plutôt qu’au nombre de cas Le nombre de décès est plus révélateur que le nombre de cas, parce qu’un nombre indéterminé de cas ont échappé au dépistage. En outre, le rythme de dépistage et la sélection des groupes testés varie d’un pays à l’autre et d’un territoire à l’autre.

The controllability of COVID-19 can also be attributed to tools that quantify data inputs—and aggregate information about who and when in the context of where.
