The COVID Tracking Project

Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX, and ACKO Productions

The COVID Tracking Project, a massive volunteer effort to document tests, hospitalizations, and deaths in an effort to show where the virus was, and who was dying, became a de facto source of data amid the chaos of COVID-19.  The series addresses the crucial concerns the United States faces about why the nation had to rely on volunteerism, rather than federal and state public health institutions, to receive critical COVID data during the worst public health crisis in a century.
