As of April 5, 2020, there were more than an estimated 1.3 million cases of COVID-19 globally and over 70,000 deaths. This highly contagious virus has spread across the globe with unprecedented and astonishing speed.
We are pleased to bring to you two guests, epidemiologists Mary Haan, MPH, DrPH (UCSF, Professor of Epidemiology) and George Kaplan, Ph.D (Univ. of Michigan, Emeritus Professor of Epidemiology), who can speak on these very relevant topics at a critical time.
Professor Haan will address the importance of accurate and reliable global population data on COVID-19, for practice and for public policy. For instance, what policies are needed going forward to better prevent and control future pandemics? Where can we find models that work?
Professor Kaplan will start with Thomas Kuhn’s remark that, “the answers you get depend on the questions you ask,” and will ask if that applies to the COVID-19 pandemic. How does viewing the pandemic with lenses that range from the biological to the societal help us in thinking about the causes, treatment, and consequences of this virus, the pandemic’s footprint into the future, and its impact on different groups, communities, and places?
