COVID-19 is a formidable global threat, impacting all aspects of society and exacerbating the existing inequities of our current social systems. As we battle the virus across multiple fronts, data are critical for understanding this disease and for coordinating an effective global response. Given the current digitization of so many aspects of life, we are amassing data that can be extrapolated and analyzed for the effective forecasting, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19. Learning from the data, responsibly and across disciplines, in combination with communication, education, treatment, and policy decisions, are our best ways forward to defeat this virus while laying the groundwork for collaborative data science in the face of future calamity.
