’50 states and 50 different approaches:‘ States scramble to hire COVID-19 contact tracers

Massachusetts has added more than 1,000 workers and sent some into communities with large numbers of cases. California last week began training the first recruits of a planned 20,000-person contact tracing team. And New York plans to add as many as 17,000 contact tracers through a partnership with former Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Resolve to Save Lives, headed by former CDC Director Tom Frieden.

Wie die Berechnung der Opferzahlen weltweit zustande kommt

Die Weltgesundheitsbehörde W.H.O. zählt auch vermutete „Corona-Tote“ als solche. Die U.S.-Seuchenbehörde C.D.C. gibt einen Leitfaden für das kreative Ausfüllen von Sterbeurkunden heraus und lässt Verdachtsfälle in die Statistiken mit CORVID-19-Opfern einfließen und so in die Höhe sausen. Neben den Regierungen in Italien und Deutschland lässt auch die U.S.-Regierung alle Toten mit Coronavirus als Tote durch Coronavirus zählen. Und die Johns-Hopkins-Universität bezieht ihre Daten „hauptsächlich“ von einer Webseite in China, welche neben „lokalen Medien“ wiederum die Johns Hopkins Universität selbst und die W.H.O. als Quelle angibt.

Und selbst das ist noch nicht alles.

Daten zur Corona-Pandemie: Woher die Johns-Hopkins-Zahlen stammen

Die dabei stets genannte Quellenangabe Johns-Hopkins-Universität greift allerdings zu kurz. Denn die Daten, die die Universität in einem sogenannten Dashboard laut eigenen Angaben für 180 Länder in Echtzeit publiziert, stammen aus Hunderten Einzelquellen und laufen bei der Privatuniversität aus Baltimore lediglich zusammen. Gleicht man die Daten mit denen der offiziellen deutschen Meldestelle, dem Robert Koch-Institut ab, liegen die Zahlen der US-Universität teils um mehrere Tausend Neuinfektionen höher.

Event 201 Recommendations: Public-private cooperation for pandemic preparedness and response


Public health authorities should work with private employers and trusted community leaders such as faith leaders, to promulgate factual information to employees and citizens. Trusted, influential private-sector employers should create the capacity to readily and reliably augment public messaging, manage rumors and misinformation, and amplify credible information to support emergency public communications. National public health agencies should work in close collaboration with WHO to create the capability to rapidly develop and release consistent health messages. For their part, media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including though the use of technology.

Accomplishing the above goals will require collaboration among governments, international organizations and global business.

Event 201: Bill Gates & World Economic Forum Simulated Coronavirus Outbreak 6 Weeks Before First Case in Wuhan


Event 201 is a pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated the pandemic preparedness efforts needed to diminish the large-scale economic and societal consequences of a severe pandemic. Drawing from actual events, Event 201 identifies important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience.

The Event 201 scenario

(October 2019)

The disease starts in pig farms in Brazil, quietly and slowly at first, but then it starts to spread more rapidly in healthcare settings. When it starts to spread efficiently from person to person in the low-income, densely packed neighborhoods of some of the megacities in South America, the epidemic explodes. It is first exported by air travel to Portugal, the United States, and China and then to many other countries. Although at first some countries are able to control it, it continues to spread and be reintroduced, and eventually no country can maintain control.

There is no possibility of a vaccine being available in the first year.

It was not “predicted” according to the organizers and sponsors of the event.

Private sector initiative. Participation of corporate execs, foundations, financial institutions, Banks, Big Pharma, CIA, CDC, No health officials on behalf of national governments or the WHO. The simulation exercise was held on the same day as the opening of the CISM World Militaty Sports Games in Wuhan.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise


In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.
