EVENT DESCRIPTION

As the COVID crisis continues to test the capacity of the healthcare system, what interventions are necessary to turn the tide of new infections, will the relief package have an impact, and how will a prolonged shutdown affect our economy?

Some of the questions we will ask our Expert panel: Nurses and healthcare professionals, what challenges are they facing? What is your analysis of the relief bill final version signed into law by the president? What may be needed to mobilize large-scale emergency response if the crisis worsens? Do the numbers suggest an acceleration or is there still time to flatten the curve?
