Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, efforts to quantitatively measure the global health situation and/or governments’ reaction vis-à-vis the pandemic have flourished. In spite of the significance of data in the fight against the pandemic, however, such global knowledge is largely questionable, insofar as it exposes itself to the many hazards and fallacies associated with global attempts to frame the social world in numbers. This is why the paper attempts to identify the hazards and fallacies most commonly associated with global measurements of social phenomena and to verify whether and to what extent these hazards and fallacies affect numerical representations of the pandemic and its effects. To this end, the paper analyses ten English-language global numerical initiatives that were launched between January and May 2020, and reviews them in light of existing critical literature on global numbers. The aim is to provide a deeper understanding of global measurements of health and related law-and-policy measures, and to suggest caution about their use as a basis for knowledge and action in the context of the pandemic.

社会衡量的危害和谬误:大流行中的全球指标

自 COVID-19 大流行爆发以来,定量衡量全球健康状况和/或政府对大流行的反应的努力蓬勃发展。然而,尽管数据在抗击大流行中具有重要意义,但这种全球知识在很大程度上是有问题的,因为它使自己暴露于与以数字构建社会世界的全球企图相关的许多危险和谬误。这就是为什么本文试图确定最常与全球社会现象测量相关的危害和谬误,并验证这些危害和谬误是否以及在多大程度上影响了大流行及其影响的数字表示。为此,本文分析了 2020 年 1 月至 5 月期间推出的十项英语全球数字倡议,并根据有关全球数字的现有批判文献对其进行审查。目的是让人们更深入地了解全球健康衡量标准和相关法律和政策措施,并建议谨慎使用它们作为大流行背景下知识和行动的基础。
