July 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
A virtual meeting of the Bipartisan Commission on Biodefense will be held on July 21, 2020 to discuss “COVID Complexities: Converging Threats, Fractured Resources”.
The ongoing novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has taken the lives of more than 100,000 Americans and damaged the Nation’s economy. As the country reopens, the disease threatens the public, now and into the foreseeable future. Federal support for state, local, tribal and territorial preparedness and biosurveillance will be crucial to addressing further spread of COVID-19. The Commission intends to address national policy and resource needs for response to and recovery from this crisis.
Jared Moskowitz – Director, Florida Division of Emergency Management
Alexis Madrigal – Co-Founder, The COVID Tracking Project, and Staff Writer, The Atlantic
David Mitchell – President, International Association of Emergency Medical Services Chiefs
Speakers will discuss the potential for compoundment of the biological threat, disease-tracking needs, hospital preparedness, and emergency management challenges.
