DHFP: COVID-19: Implications for Business: Why has Covid-19 had less of an impact in Africa (or has it)?

  • Thursday, March 24, 2022
  • 6:30 PM- 8:30 PM
  • Atherton Hall: Room C9
The impact of the pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa remains markedly lower compared to the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Several factors have been brought forth as potentially influencing the low burden of Covid-19 illness e.g. age demographics, potential cross-protection from earlier exposure, limitations of SARS-CoV-2 testing, effective public health responses etc. In this event, we will discuss these possible explanations as backed by scientific literature and potential implications to the business environment. Dinner will be provided.
Schreyer Scholar Alison Roby
