Newswise Live COVID-19 Expert Panel for April 2, 2020, at 2 PM EDT, Media Invited to Attend and Ask Questions
Pandemic update, Italy is flattening the curve while the U.S. has become the epicenter. What have we learned about the virus and how will we know when the tide turns on the rates of infection? Is social distancing working? Are enough tests available to identify and isolate the infected? What have we learned about the virus surviving on surfaces and in the air? What mathematical models can help to predict the peak and hopefully the decline in new cases as time goes on? Is the end in sight?
