Policy Frameworks and Impacts on the Epidemiology of COVID-19


This Working Group will describe and compare public health policies used to combat COVID-19 and changes in the epidemiology of 2019-nCoV in a variety of places (national /subnational). It will tease out how these complex policies, alone or in combination, shaped the course of the infection within each jurisdiction. The group aims to produce contextually relevant descriptions of these events, with a series of infographics to inform future pandemic planning.
