COVID Behaviors Dashboard: Updated Data Show Omicron Trends

Global Omicron cases have exploded since the COVID-19 variant was first reported to the World Health Organization on November 24. The most recent data from the COVID Behaviors Dashboard reflects that trend: the highest percentage of respondents in multiple countries are reporting positive test results since the dashboard went live in May of 2021.

  • Reported positivity rates have jumped at least 10 percentage points in South Africa, Mozambique, Puerto Rico, and many other countries in the past month.
  • In the November 16-30 data collection period for South Africa, 7% of tests were positive. In the most recent December period, that number rose to 37%, more than a four-fold increase.

Other insights from the latest data collection period (Dec 16-31):

  • 20% of unvaccinated health workers in Japan are now reporting that they will definitely get vaccinated, up from only 3% in early December
  • 90% of South African respondents reported that they have worn a mask all or most of the time, but only 70% believe that all or most other people are wearing masks

    COVID Behaviors Dashboard

    The COVID Behaviors Dashboard visualizes data from the COVID-19 Trends and Impact Survey (CTIS), launched by Facebook with the Delphi Group at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Maryland Social Data Science Center. Insights and analyses on how to use the data were written by researchers and social and behavior change communication experts at CCP in collaboration with WHO’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network. This site is intended to be used by policy makers, health officials and practitioners at national and subnational levels to better understand the behavioral drivers behind vaccine uptake, masking and physical distancing among other behaviors that affect the spread of COVID-19.

    Data from this ongoing survey is collected daily and the dashboard is updated every two weeks.

      Translators without Borders Glossary for COVID-19

      Translators without Borders (TWB) is identifying key terminology that people use to talk about COVID-19 as well as commonly-used technical terms to develop a multilingual, plain-language glossary.

      The glossary is designed to assist field workers and interpreters engaging with communities to raise awareness about COVID-19. It aims to improve communication between responders and affected communities by providing accurate translations of useful terminology related to the disease outbreak. In the coming weeks, we will keep adding new terms and additional languages to make this glossary far more widely relevant.
