AARMS COVID-19 Seminar: JC Loredo-Osti (Memorial)
February 17, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Covid-19 management in Newfoundland and Labrador
Atlantic Canada and the territories have experienced a qualitatively different COVID-19 epidemic than the other Canadian provinces. The question is, do these differences suggest different best approaches to public health policy or they are just the consequence of geographic/demographic conditions? When infection prevalence is low, imported infections are not only a large fraction of all infections, but a major trigger of outbreaks. This also posses questions about the merits of travel restrictions as well as the escalation of measures in response to outbreaks. On this presentation, we will discuss some of the ways to quantify these issues in the context of the pandemic in Atlantic Canada, and in particular in Newfoundland and Labrador.
This is a virtual zoom seminar. If you would like to attend, please email the organizers for connection details. All times are given in the Atlantic timezone.
