Covid Crisis Group Releases Report


In early 2020, as Covid-19 began to be reported in the U.S., Harvard scholars assembled a rapid response team to work with a national network of recognized experts and leaders on swift responses to the emerging public health and economic crisis. This rapid response group would eventually evolve and come to be know by our current name: The Justice, Health & Democracy Impact Initiative.

Now, just over three years later, some of JHD’s rapid response team have co-written a report with other members of the non-partisan Covid Crisis Group titled, Lessons from the Covid War: An Investigative Report. In this unflinching look at the scale and efficacy of America’s Covid response efforts, the authors sift through mountains of information to assess what worked, what didn’t, and what must be done to prepare for an inevitable future global pandemic.
