Description:
Binghamton University Associate Professor of History Bradley Skopyk and Professor of Political Science Olga Shvetsova will introduce the original dataset on the governmental origins of COVID19 public health policies worldwide. The dataset contains daily observations from the start of the pandemic and through July-December of 2020 depending on the country, coded at the level of ISO-2 units. It is publicly available through the website and, more fully, upon request. We present the data and the research already published based on this data, and discuss things that could be done but are beyond our own analytic capacity. We also introduce our planned next “big step” based off the dataset: a project to create a public-facing ‘living history’ dashboard of the COVID-19 pandemic.
