The COVID-19 Research Database enables researchers to use linked real-world data in order to better understand the impacts of the pandemic and potential mitigation strategies. Below is some of the research that has come out of the database:
The Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) analyzed mortality data to find that daily deaths in the United States were 10% higher during the pandemic.
