Combatting coronavirus in our community – what works, why now

John Swartzberg, Clinical Professor Emeritus of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, discussed the coronavirus pandemic at an online event hosted by The Commonwealth Club.

“Combatting the coronavirus pandemic has quickly become a global health priority. Communities across the United States, including here in the Bay Area, are using a range of strategies to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.

In its first program on the coronavirus crisis, The Commonwealth Club will feature two experts who will discuss why significant community interventions are so important and what must be done now. The program will feature the lead author of the well-publicized Journal of the American Medical Association article on how Taiwan has been so effective at reducing the spread of the coronavirus, and what communities in the United States can learn from this experience.”
