EEB Seminar: COVID-19: the scientific basis for what we know and the exit strategy it provides
Marm Kilpatrick will give a broad overview of the vast scientific literature on COVID-19 including mechanisms of transmission; high and low risk activities; fatality, including impacts on different ages and people with pre-existing conditions; challenges in understanding current levels of transmission & what this means for relaxing lockdowns; and how to interpret models & projections. He will highlight what he thinks are the biggest remaining questions and why they are difficult to answer. He will also, outline what almost all epidemiologists have outlined as the best strategy moving forward that allows us to both prevent widespread transmission and disease and also allow significant economic activity, and why we didn't implement this 3 months ago and what still hinders us now.
