Look but Don’t Touch: (how) will social distancing work against COVID-19? – Online

In much of the world social distancing measures are in place to contain the COVID-19 virus. But what exactly is the impact of current social distancing strategies? How do they change the epidemic dynamic? And how long do we need to keep these measures in place for them to have the needed effect?

Even if we manage to contain the epidemic it is possible that there will be a second outbreak. If that is the case how much time do we have to get ready? What is the best way to prepare? What is the best strategy to minimize the current epidemic and get ready for a second wave?

At this event we will discuss these questions based on new research from MIT Media Lab and McKinsey Global Institute.
