Coronavirus Central - Episode 5 - February 14, 2020
In Episode 5, we review a study that suggests a far higher case count in Wuhan than previously reported by using statistics to determine both the number of asymptomatic carriers as well as to offer analysis of how effective the quarantine efforts are proving. From there, we look at the potential for re-infection as well as how this disease might evolve and recur on a seasonal basis. A deeper dive into the supply line reveals the many vulnerabilities in public health against an outbreak including pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, hospital beds, and production capacity. We take a first glimpse at a potential effort to protect first responders and most vulnerable populations with antibody production as well.
