02 Feb [OPHA] COVID-19 Pandemic: Different Countries, Different Approaches Webinar

You are invited to the OPHA COVID-19 Pandemic: Different Countries, Different Approaches Webinar on February 23rd, 2021 at 12:00PM to 1:00PM (EST).

Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the world. After the outbreak of COVID-19, countries around the world have adopted different approaches to contain the virus according to their local context. Some nations have effectively curbed further widespread infection and taken measures to ensure a safe return to daily life. Nationally and provincially, Canada has adopted various approaches to control the spread of COVID-19, including training more people to expand contracting efforts, encouraging the public to download voluntary COVID-19 exposure notification app, enforcing regional lockdowns, travel restrictions and mandating population-wide use of masks. The interprovincial variation in Canada has demonstrated the unique vulnerabilities of each province to COVID-19 and has provided lessons for future health security challenges.

Knowledge sharing on the approaches in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic among various countries is critical to ensure effective response and swift recovery from the crisis. To this end, OPHA is pleased to organize this webinar in collaboration with Dr. Alireza Khatami, who brings a PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from Umeå University to facilitate an international analysis and comparison of Canada’s containment efforts to other countries.
