About this Episode
Rebecca (Bec) Richmond dials into Radio Advisory from London to compare international response models to the coronavirus pandemic. Together, Rae and Bec dissect why some countries have been more successful than others at using predictive modeling to prevent the spread of the pandemic, weighing factors like history handling other viral pandemics (e.g. H1N1 or SARS) and preparation time. As world leaders collectively work on developing “circuit breaker” plans in order to control future waves of Covid-19 as they come down the pipe, health systems are simultaneously adjusting their strategy and trying to lock in crisis-driven innovation.
