Gerarda commented on Communicate health information with economic information

Hi @Isaac Jumba 
I'm hoping that communications specialists might have some ideas about this once the economists and epidemiologists have collaborated.
One idea is to add an economic response column to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) Pandemic Intervals Framework (PIF) that @Len Hennessy contributed to this discussion, entitled 'Stick Together By Staying Apart: Use the CDC's "Pandemic Intervals Framework" to explain the value and context of social distancing.'
By combining epidemilogy and economics, the hard truth is that COVID-19 is a real life 'trolley problem'. See https://grattan.edu.au/news/covid-19-the-endgame-and-how-to-get-there-2/?fbclid=IwAR0tWAPPaIIx0z9_77D5frXiiyOvQi9fSdn3HQ9C_jr_FSSSiC38efTtDss.
Which endgame will we choose?

I saw this one too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5-dI74zxPg

Yes, Estela Kennen . I think getting epidemiologists and economists working together may help us get on the front foot in this very interconnected world we live in. Or if they already are, I would like to see more joined up messages about that.
