(US) Coronavirus; Putting the Country Back to Work
21 July 2020 |1:00 pm - 2:30 pm BST
Key Take Away:
Attendees will learn the risks associated with reopening businesses in the aftermath of COVID-19, along with the availability of non-pharmaceutical interventions to improve safety for employees, customers, and other stakeholders. Adaptations to the epidemic through work-from-home and distance education have meanwhile opened the door for enormous financial savings through reduced use of brick-and-mortar structures, and their associated costs.
The United States must go back to work to avoid lasting economic damage from the coronavirus shutdown. Failure to take sensible precautions could however repeat the mistakes of 1918, when premature relaxation of countermeasures resulted in unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations.
Areas Covered in the Session:
1. The United States cannot shut down its economy indefinitely to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but premature relaxation of precautions will lead to unnecessary deaths as shown by similar events during the 1918 flu pandemic.
• Non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) such as social distancing and face masks worked against the 1918 flu but the disease returned when people dropped their guard.
