Covid vaccines: Those that work - and the others on the way

02/01/2021 COVID DATA via The Atlantic Journal
The Atlantic supported Covid Tracking Project will stop collecting data on March 7th.
"With federal agencies stepping up, the volunteer group feels it can take a step back."
From The Atlantic: How CDC handed over hospitalization-data control to HHS
Hospitalization data reveal the condition of the country’s hospitals: COVID-19 admissions, currently hospitalized patients, ICU availability, and access to personal protective equipment and other supplies. Over time the HHS system has become the most reliable source of federal pandemic data.
Examining the COVID Tracking Project’s map of the HHS release, one can zoom in on Seattle, say, and find data about how full any given hospital’s ICU is that week. It provides an unprecedented look at precisely how much pressure COVID-19 places on our health-care systems. The White House’s Coronavirus Task Force is now using this kind of information to dispatch medical support teams to hard-hit areas.
