Pandemic Resilience: Testing
Danielle Allen, Ganesh Sitaraman, and E. Glen Weyl will discuss Pandemic Resilience and Testing in this conversation of our COVID-19 white paper series. The discussion will be moderated by Carmel Shachar. This event is co-sponsored by the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics.

In order to successfully combat the COVID-19 epidemic, we need to thoughtfully mobilize and utilize all resources available. The Edmond J. Safra Center’s COVID-19 Response Initiative, a bipartisan group of experts in economics, public health, technology and ethics from across the country, has released the nation’s first comprehensive operational roadmap for mobilizing and reopening the U.S. economy in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

We will explore this operational roadmap to pandemic resilience in a series of events. This event will focus on questions around COVID-19 testing programs. How can states coordinate their public health efforts? How can we reflect the different needs of local communities? What is the role of federal policymakers in creating testing programs and supporting reopening efforts?
