“COVID-19 Pandemic Post-Mortem”
By: Phil Youngblood
It has been three years now since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic.
The pandemic is not over, but it more infrequently makes headlines. It is time to revisit this global phenomenon so we can learn from it and are better able to prepare for the next one.
In this presentation, I will examine what has happened over the last three years in terms of:
Diseases and How They Spread
—What is a pathogen?
—How do we get infected?
—How does a disease run its course from the standpoint of the individual and society?
—What makes a disease endemic, epidemic, or pandemic?
—What pandemics have humans suffered through?
—How does this pandemic compare to others in the past?
—How does a pandemic end?
COVID-19 Pandemic Timeline
—How has this pandemic played out over the last three years?
—What did the pandemic look like in different countries, regions, and worldwide?
