CORONAVIRUS: A global overview

  • Much of Western and Central Europe’s epidemic appears to have peaked and there may be important lessons for other countries globally
  • Much of Europe moved from hard lock- downs to very careful, cautious reopening and the initial evidence is encouraging
  • The lockdown vs reopening debate has moved to analysis of how countries can use their epidemic growth number (Rt) and a close monitoring of outbreaks and clusters to dial smart, targeted measures up or down
  • With sufficient care, we can prevent an epidemic resurgence and revive our economies
