I.  Welcome and Introductions

II. Roundtable Discussion:  Panel members engaged in a robust scientific        discussion looking at likely scenarios for how COVID-19 will manifest            throughout the globe over the course of the next several months to              years. We explored this topic because a deeper understanding could            provide some sense of certainty to businesses making short, medium,          and long-term decisions. The discussion included tactical methods of            disease control as well as longer-term strategies for effectively                        eliminating the threat of COVID-19. Topics included:

  • Testing

  • Contact Tracing

  • Electronic Surveillance

  • Quarantines

  • Targeted Methods of Exposure Mitigation

  • Pharmaceutical & Medical Treatments and Interventions
