Epidemic intelligence to minimize 2019-nCoV’s public health, economic and social impact in Europe

Project description

Impact assessment of coronavirus outbreak and COVID-19

The EU and its Member States are working around the clock to fight the coronavirus and COVID-19. Actions are being taken to contain and slow down the spread of the virus, which poses an unprecedented threat to public health, economy and society. The EU-funded EpiPose project will investigate COVID-19’s impact on society and health services in the EU. It will also estimate its economic impact. Specifically, the project will collect and disseminate epidemiological data to the largest level possible, provide country-specific assessments of key epidemiological parameters and study the impact on public health networks. It will also conduct an economic analysis of treatments and other EU interventions. The project will also promote the valuable interaction between scientists, public health institutions and society.
