New Developments in the COVID-19 Outbreak

Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:45 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

The rise of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is causing growing fear and uncertainty among the general population, but what is the true threat from this disease?  What are the realities of person-to-person viral spread, how can we prevent infection, and what remains unknown about the virus? These questions loom as the epidemic progresses and the media continues to spotlight the spread of the disease.  Moreover, as China’s economic growth is expected to slow to 4.5% in the first quarter of 2020, how will COVID-19 impact the US and global economy?  These questions will form the starting point for an evening discussion among government, economic, and public health experts on the impact of the new coronavirus.
