The first curve are the actions taken to end the COVID-19 Pandemic:

  • Testing (now)

  • Social Distancing (now)

  • Contact Tracing and Isolation (now)

  • Travel Quarantine (now)

  • Personal Protective Equipment (now)

  • Medical Treatments (in development)

  • Vaccines (expected in 18-24 months)

The second curve is the perceived return to a “new normal” living with the endemic SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Outbreaks are inevitable.

It is vital to rapidly respond to pathogen outbreaks to prevent the next pandemic.
