Ernst Strüngmann Forum


Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

“Panic and hysteria are not appropriate. This is a disease that is in the cases and their close contacts. It’s not a hidden enemy lurking behind bushes. Get organized, get educated, and get working….Test the suspects, test the suspects, test the suspects. Then, effectively isolate the confirmed cases…and quarantine…at the end of the day, humanity will be victorious over yet another virus. The question is how much and how fast we will take the measures necessary to minimize the damage that this thing can do.”

Bruce Aylward, senior advisor to the Director General of World Health Organization (as well as a former rapporteur, former moderator, and former PAC member at different ES Forums, such as Disease Eradication in the 21st Century)
