Coronavirus Crisis Update: Live from Munich with Jeremy Farrar of the Wellcome Trust
In mid-February, Steve Morrison of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center attended the Munich Security Conference. There, he moderated a roundtable on health in disordered settings, a town hall on COVID-19, and a dinner with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. He also spoke with a variety of policymakers, donors, and agency heads that are leading the response to the coronavirus epidemic.
In this third episode, Steve speaks with Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust. They talk about his experience with SARS in Vietnam, the number of unknowns surrounding the coronavirus, China's unprecedented response and its impacts, and the role Wellcome is playing.
