WBEZ, a local Chicago NPR affiliate, quoted Wafaa El-Sadr, MD, MPH, MPA, director of ICAP at Columbia University, in a May 28 story about incomplete COVID-19 data in the state of Illinois. WBEZ reported that the jobs of those who’ve contracted COVID-19 is unknown in almost 80% of cases, which could help prevent potential future outbreaks.
Dr. El-Sadr said data “should drive everything we do. Knowing where new infections are happening… This knowledge is what’s needed in order to know what to do next.”
