COVID-19 is caused by a virus. The COVID-19 pandemic is caused by a lack of good information. A pandemic is essentially an information problem, and if we solve the information problem, we can defeat the virus. Pandemics may be unpredictable, but they can be planned for.
This webinar will compare pandemic-induced economic crises to past recessions, map the phases of the pandemic economy and the information needed to enable economic recovery, discuss digital communication strategies, and describe the role of telecommunications in supporting testing, contact tracing, and other public health responses.
