Resarchers from UAB, UPC, Max Planck Institute and IDAEA-CSIC warn of the need to have detailed population data of the COVID-19 in Spain
13 October 2020
In a letter entitled The need for detailed COVID-19 data in Spain that was published in the journal The Lancet Public Health, researchers from different fields expose the problem of not having data disaggregated by age, sex and geographical area of people affected by SARS-CoV2 in Spain, which prevents a better understanding of the dynamics of the pandemic at the national, regional and local levels.
The letter was signed by a team led by the demographer Sergi Trias-Llimós, from the Center for Demographic Studies-Autonomous University of Barcelona (CED-UAB); Ainhoa Alustiza and Tim Riffe, of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research; Clara Prats, from the Department of Physics and the research group in Computational Biology of Complex Systems (BIOCOM-SC) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC), and Aurelio Tobias, from the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC).
