[VIRTUAL EVENT] What is the best way to stop a pandemic?
As we have seen with the recent outbreaks of coronavirus, Ebola and Zika, governments sometimes exercise right to impose exceptional measures to protect public health during global health emergencies. However, is this the most effective response to a pandemic? Might limiting citizens’ freedoms have unintended consequences?
In this global health lab we look at the wide range of strategies to prevent and respond to pandemic, including mass health communication, border controls, forms of confinement or quarantine, food chain interventions, vaccination programmes and others to explore what the best way to stop a pandemic might be.
