ABSTRACT

Social Dimensions of the Novel Coronavirus (nCoV) Outbreak and Response: Meeting Report   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The roundtable discussed the social, economic and livelihood implications of quarantine, screening and other nCoV [novel coronavirus] related public health responses, within China and beyond. The group also explored the implications of societal understandings of disease and risk, and health-seeking behaviour in the context of outbreaks. This discussion covered healthcare resources, and the questions about preparedness and response in other regions beyond China, including Africa, where capacities and political dynamics would be different. Public responses to outbreak-related health interventions was a further focus, including social trust and stigma."
