Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

The Buenos Aires government today opened all the data on the epidemiological situation, health and territorial management, mobility and public space during the pandemic. In total, there are 27 datasets that are added to the epidemiological reports of the Buenos Aires Ministry of Health and that allow us to measure the evolution of the pandemic for better decision-making. The information is available at www.buenosaires.gob.ar/coronavirus/datos and will be updated daily.
The site integrates different indicators and includes data related to the actions of prevention, detection, referral, monitoring and isolation of cases, the evolution of the use of public and private transport and the transformation of public space based on the measures taken. The information, published in open data, follows the recommendations and good practices of the Alliance for Open Government, an organization that Buenos Aires has been part of since 2016, and the models used by the cities of Los Angeles, Berlin and London. In addition, it is one of the first sites in the region that adds indicators on health management, mobility and public space to epidemiological data.
