From the Introduction: "This report summarises the findings of a strategic and performance analysis of ECDC's [European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control] response to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] between August and October 2020. The context and subject of this analysis is ECDC's performance during the COVID-19 outbreak. Hence, the scope of the analysis, and this report, is largely limited to events that took place in the period from the first known cases of COVID-19 in China until the time of this strategic analysis. The analysis focuses on ECDC's activities, organisation and processes that were in place during this period. As a result of this, the analysis and the resulting conclusions and recommendations pertain primarily to ECDC's operations in times of crisis."
