The ongoing novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is a real-time stress test of the Nation’s preparedness and ability to respond to emerging infectious diseases.

On May 8, 2020, we premiered a virtual meeting of the Commission– COVID-19: Forewarned But Not Forearmed– to better understand the ongoing response to novel coronavirus 2019, national readiness to address possible large-scale spread of the disease in the United States and throughout the world, and implications for improving preparedness for the next biological threat.

Speakers shared their perspectives, experiences, challenges, and recommended solutions with regard to the federal and non-federal responses to COVID-19.
