How a Univeristy Helped Connecticut Create a Data-Driven Pandemic Response
The state of Connecticut took its first step toward containing the spread of COVID-19 in March 2020 by sending people home to work remotely, temporarily closing public schools and businesses after confirmed cases surpassed 1,000 across the country.
Fast forward several months, and the risks associated with COVID-19 remained high. As a result, community leaders relied on Big Data dashboards to improve their understanding of the virus’s impact. These interactive dashboards provided critical information, revealed areas of concern and helped track trends related to the spread of COVID-19.
