ABSTRACT

It Takes a Herd: How Can We Use Immunity to Combat an Emerging Infectious Disease?   [open pdf - 0B]

From Part 1: Divide and Conquer: "You and a group of congressional colleagues have been assigned to an ad hoc public-health committee charged with crafting policy for dealing with the evolving novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARSCoV-2). Unfortunately, community spread is occurring and limited tools and resources for testing and contact tracing are available, thus the group is focused on policies to slow down the rate of transmission including pursuing individual and group immunity. A subgroup of your peers is focused on mitigation and suppression strategies, while your subcommittee has been assigned to generate a road map that will move the country towards developing protective community-level immunity over the long term to the novel coronavirus as the public-health crisis unfolds."
