Given that testing is only slowly ramping up, we should be pushing for transparent time series data on daily total admissions of people with apparent pneumonia for each large SMSA city. My guess is such big Data would be one way of observing possible breakouts of serious cases, and show where it is urgent to get testing and quarantines. Correlates of the virus should be observed and made publicly available.
That is from my colleague John Nye. So who is going to do this?
