Do more people have the virus now than a few weeks back? Is it spreading faster than we can control it? Are people experiencing more severe symptoms now than sometime back? Is the virus more dangerous now than at the start of the pandemic?

So many questions.

Which places are getting worse and, more importantly, why? How close are some places to herd immunity? Did the lockdown really work and, if so, where did it work best? Did states screw up their re-opening plans and if so, how and why? What would we - should we - have done differently?

All these questions are on everyone's mind, including Balaji Padmanabhan, director of the USF Muma College of Business' Center for Analytics and Creativity. Padmanabhan wonders why there isn't a national dashboard through which trends, success and failures can be posted for all to see.
