How COVID-19 Tests Will Help Reopen America

Tuesday, May 19 | 8 am PT

There is widespread recognition that our ability to perform COVID-19 tests efficiently on a large scale—whether to diagnose current cases or determine who might have immunity—is key to restarting economic activity in the US. How close are we to where we need to be in terms of the numbers and types of tests, our capacity to process results, and our ability to trace contacts of those infected? What are the practicalities of getting this infrastructure up and running across the country? And what are the risks of reopening if we don’t have it in place?

Following the comments from our experts, we will open the call to Q&A. We are delighted to share that this discussion will be conducted via video conference - please join the call via Webex to submit questions and view the conversation amongst our panelists for an optimized experience.
