New Developments in the COVID-19 Response

Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM EDT

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has changed the everyday lives of millions of people in the US and globally — with social distancing the new normal, and shelter-in-place, stay-at-home or quarantine orders in effect in multiple localities.  Moreover, as schools and businesses shutter, the economic impact of the pandemic is immediate and severe.  Simultaneously, our health systems are facing equipment shortages and healthcare workers are stretched thin.

Fear and uncertainty are widespread, but what have we actually learned about the new coronavirus in the months since it emerged? What are the realities of person-to-person viral spread and how can we test for, prevent, and treat infection? What remains unknown about the virus? How will the epidemic in the US compare with those in China and Europe, and is there an end in sight? These questions will form the starting point for a discussion among public health experts on the impact of COVID-19.


You may also tune in to this event via Facebook Live on our Facebook page beginning at 6:30PM EDT.
