Lessons for the Next Pandemic

May 14 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Free

Although scientific progress enabled humanity to create a covid19 vaccine quickly, millions nevertheless died and many more suffered and continue to suffer from the virus. What should we learn from the experience? Which societies managed the pandemic better or worse and why? Can we improve the political, economic and social approaches to public health globally to do better with the next pandemic?

14 Lessons for the Next Pandemic (New York Times)

Early lessons for the next pandemic (Brookings Institute)

“You can lead a horse to water…” – the document Trump ignored

We just reached 1 million (official) COVID dead in the U.S. – Why??

A few people can influence millions

A pandemic has social, not must medical, implications

Fear and resentment bring out the worst in people

What comes next? May become epidemic, like flu. That Spanish flu may still be around

And by ABC News

There is no ‘profile’ for who gets it (something everyone tries to find in a pandemic)

The numbers are never accurate

The rich get richer
