Yes, data can indeed save lives, as long as it ticks the following boxes:
* it is of high veracity (i.e. it stems from reliable sources that don't have any vested interests or biases that can skew it towards any particular direction)
* it is sufficient (a few weeks' worths of data across a few dozen cities is barely enough)
* diversity of the problem is taken into account (not all COVID-19 cases are the same while there is talk of different strains across the world, making any inferences about the disease based on Chinese data risky at best)
* confidence scores and error margins are also taken into account (I use an oximeter myself regularly and let me tell you something that this lovely infographic doesn't: it's not that accurate. Cold hands or lack of proper circulation can skew the readings wildly, while at best it has an error margin of 1-2 %age points)
* other factors (since this is not a paid gig, I'm not that keen on spending too much time on this comment. However, good old common sense dictates that there are bound to be other factors at play which are not mentioned here)

Beyond all this, it's important to remember that even the best data in the world may not yield sufficient value if it's not used properly in a data model. So, making bold statements like "data saves lives" is more click-bait than real science. Cheers!
