Restarting US through Pandemic Modeling

Jun 11, 2020
05:00 PM - 06:00 PM (America/Los_Angeles)

Overview

TiE Seattle has the pleasure to have Dr. Ali Mokdad, who has been modeling the Covid-19 pandemic used by the White House and hear his suggestions for the safe and effective reopening of the US economy. Over the last few months, the novel coronavirus has rapidly spread worldwide, leaving countries facing highly variable trajectories of COVID-19 infections and deaths. Dr. Mokdad will discuss the construction of the CoronaVirus model and how its predictions have changed over time as various states have implemented different strategies for dealing with the CoronaVirus. He will outline his thoughts on how various states can utilize the IHME model to safely reopen their economies over time.

Dr. Ali says ‘Despite our nation’s eagerness to move past the pandemic, the history of the virus remains to be written in many states. Some states will fare much better than others, not only in terms of lives lost, but also in terms of the economic toll. Whatever decisions state leaders make when weighing the costs and benefits of physical distancing, it is crucial for them to be aware of both the spread of the virus and factors that could speed or reduce its spread’.

This event is moderated by Akhtar Badshah.
