In July, FinMango launches a collaboration with Google on the COVID Open Data Project. The Project was the world's most comprehensive COVID-19 dataset that tracked sub-national cases and vaccine deployment data for 20,000+ distinct locations in over 190 countries. We provided insights about the pandemic’s effects on local economies, and worked directly with their teams to research and curate data sources. The work was used by the WHO, World Bank, IMF, Harvard Research, USAID, and Verily to name a few. The work was used in vaccine research, helped governments decide public policy, and guide travel safety measures amongst many other things.
