The ongoing pandemic of Covid 19 is different from previous ones in the sense that the data science combined with statistical analysis has countless applications in epidemiology of the disease. The final product of data analysis is usually of interest to the readers. However, through this article we bring forth the process of the data collection, movement and management at the ground level. The data generators and collectors are usually the health workers who were also the care givers during the pandemic. The duplication of record maintenance and data flow at multiple places by the burnt-out workers deteriorates the quality of data. Integrated database is the need of hour for quality health management system.
