With collaboration among four APRU universities (University of California Los Angeles, University of Sydney, National University of Singapore, and Peking University), this Inaugural APRU Crisis Management Webinar, led by the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health will focus on Perspectives of the COVID-19 Pandemic: Epidemiology, Prevention and Control in the Pacific Rim Region. China, Singapore, Australia and the United States have different patterns of COVID-19 in incidence and mortality. This webinar will compare and contrast the epidemiological patterns and intervention strategies among these four countries, summarize experience and lessons learned during the COVID-19 prevention and control, and identify potential challenges, solutions, and opportunities for control of the COVID-19 pandemic.
