In March 2020 the COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic took on the responsibility of posting COVID-19 cases, testing, hospitalization, and death counts in the United States. The effort, led by The Atlantic and a team of 500 volunteers, proved to be invaluable when this key information was not otherwise reliably available as the worldwide pandemic unfolded.
The entirety of the COVID Tracking Project archives have been donated to UCSF, in collaboration with California Digital Library. Further, the raw data have been published in Dryad, a data repository that University of California is closely tied to.
