Across 205 countries, how many have reported sex-disaggregated COVID-19 data?

Sex-disaggregated data along the clinical pathway, from testing through to hospitalisations and intensive care unit (ICU) admissions, is essential to helping us understand who is being impacted by the epidemic and who has access to testing and health services.
Yet very few countries are reporting this data in its entirety.

Here’s how much sex-disaggregated data we’ve found.
