THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented public health and economic crises. In the coming weeks and months, viral tests for the presence of COVID-19 infection as well as serological tests for antibodies and potential immunity will be critical to measure the spread of the disease. Governments, businesses, and families will rely on data from these tests as they make decisions around the path forward. However, local testing data are not currently publicly available, and a comprehensive set of these data—paired with expert analysis and guidance—does not exist in one place. This initiative seeks to fill that gap.
Johns Hopkins experts in global public health, infectious disease, and emergency preparedness have been at the forefront of the international response to COVID-19.
