Lessons from COVID-19: Advancing Development of Universal Influenza Vaccines   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "For the past century, the modern pandemic experience was defined in large part by the global phenomenon of H1N1 influenza in 1918-20--a model now rapidly being revised, as COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] spreads unchecked across an interconnected world. Despite decades of warnings of the threat posed by emerging infectious diseases, humanity has proven tragically underprepared to defend itself against a novel pathogen. As we suffer the consequences of this collective failure of unheeded foresight and imagination, we must seek knowledge that will prepare us to better face future pandemic threats--including the certain emergence of a novel influenza virus."
