Understanding the Epidemiology of COVID-19: A Global Perspective

Delivered by infectious disease expert Dr. Muge Cevik, this month’s edition of ICAP’s Grand Rounds webinar series gave an overview of the global epidemiology of COVID-19, mainly focusing on disparities in transmission, severity, and outcomes. It also summarized the challenging and often misinterpreted but consequential epidemiological aspects such as asymptomatic transmission, changes in the severity of disease and transmissibility of variants focusing on better ways to evaluate these areas going forward. The COVID-19 pandemic, with its myriad uncertainties, well-publicized retractions, shifting recommendations and over 300 thousand publications, has underscored the importance of carefully synthesizing and translating the vast amount of data into evidence-based and actionable insights.
