HealthFirst Talks: COVID-19 Trends: Facts, Misinformation and Late-Breaking News
With vaccines rolling out around the globe, the “end” of the COVID-19 pandemic may be in sight – but there are still plenty of hot topics to tackle in exploring how the world has responded and shifted in the wake of this uncertain era.
On this episode of HealthFirst Talks, Dr. Scott A. Cohen of the Bassett Healthcare Network and infection prevention specialist Dr. Fiona Collins acted as expert panelists, sharing their front-line insights about the faces, misinformation and late-breaking news surrounding what many hope will prove the pandemic’s closing chapter.
One of the central issues surrounds the vaccines, themselves. Many people are unsure about the vaccines’ safety or efficacy, particularly since those available were accelerated through the approval pipeline so quickly. There are also lingering questions about which vaccine is “better” and how they differ.
Cohen and Collins dove into this topic, explaining how money and a streamlined approval process empowered a vaccine to get into the arms of people more quickly than ever before.
The duo also touched on a range of other topics, such as how the vaccines were actually researched and produced, the practicalities of the rollout and overcoming supply chain challenges, and where the world might go from here both in terms of future vaccines and healthcare, overall.
