The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has demonstrated that some countries have fared better than others in controlling the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infections after nearly a year since the first reported case in Wuhan, China in December 2019. New Zealand, Singapore, and Vietnam are currently at single digits in new community infections per day. Our esteemed panelists, moderated by PHAA, will discuss the policies and actions that government and health systems implemented in these countries that have led to successful control of COVID-19.
