Over three years since it emerged, is the COVID-19 pandemic over?
On this first-season finale of CGD’s podcast Pandemic Proof, Amanda Glassman speaks with Ashish Jha, White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator, about ending the emergency phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting the development of next generation medical countermeasures, and evaluating the world's readiness for the next pandemic.
Co-hosts Amanda Glassman and Javier Guzman then come together to reflect on the first season of Pandemic Proof, including the range of insights and proposals from guests on what works and what policy actions are still needed to better protect the world against future pandemic threats.
