COVID-19: Flattening the Curve

Thursday, April 30, 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM EDT

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 


The Academy relies on individual and organizational partners to support us in the fight against COVID-19. You can help us in these efforts by clicking here to make a gift today.


From lockdown in China and Italy, to California’s shelter in place, to New York State on PAUSE -  which measures are effectively flattening the exponential curve of COVID-19 spread, and why? How can we take lessons learned from COVID-19 responses internationally and apply them to newly emerging hotspots? Moreover, as new cases in China dwindle, the lockdown in Wuhan has been lifted, and Italy and Spain are also taking cautious steps to ease restrictions. People are slowly returning to work, but the impact on the spread of coronavirus remains unknown.  How likely is a resurgence and further need for isolation measures? This discussion will compare global approaches taken to combat COVID-19 and discuss strategies for lifting restrictions as infections decline.


You may also tune in to this event via Facebook Live on our Facebook page on April 30th beginning at 9:00 AM EDT.​
