COVID-19: The CIDRAP Viewpoint: Part 1; The Future of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lessons Learned from Pandemic Influenza [open pdf - 0B]
From the Preface: "Welcome to 'COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]: The CIDRAP [Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy] Viewpoint.' We appreciate that other expert groups have produced detailed plans for mitigating SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory disease coronavirus 2] transmission and for reopening the country after stay-at-home orders and other important mitigation steps are eased. Our intent with the Viewpoint is to add key information and address issues that haven't garnered the attention they deserve and reflect the unique experience and expertise among the CIDRAP team and our expert consultants. We will address timely issues with straight talk and clarity. And the steps we will recommend will be based on our current reality and the best available data. Our goal is to help planners envision some of the situations that might present themselves later this year or next year so that they can take key steps now, while there's still time. 'COVID-19: The CIDRAP Viewpoint' will address such topics as pandemic scenarios going forward, crisis communication, testing, contact tracing, surveillance, supply chains, and epidemiology issues and key areas for research. We will release approximately one to two reports per week."
