ON DISASTER RESPONSE

“The working template in responding to disasters and pandemics is that the federal government supports the states’ response with funding, supplies, equipment and, in very rare instances, the active military,” explains Michael Greenberger, law professor and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security."Baltimore Sun 4/20

ON RETURNING TO WORK

“There are no two ways about this. The shutdown of the economy is damaging. It is a balancing of risks. I think we will be in worse shape in the public health sector and the financial sector if we just unthinkingly send people back to business as usual.” The Guardian 3/24/20

ON EARLY TESTING 

"While we were testing in the hundreds, in Korea and other countries, tens of thousands of people have been tested,” said Michael Greenberger, director of the University of Maryland’s Center for Health and Homeland Security, adding the virus “may have been circulating for weeks” before the first cases were even acknowledged.

People who made around $230,000 a year were as much as 54% more likely to increase these types of self-protective behaviors compared to people making about $13,000.
