In the fight against the spread of COVID-19, Germany is one of the countries with the lowest mortality rates in the world from this virus. What is your strategy?

In the third webinar of this series, we invite you to learn more about Germany's valuable lessons in its handling of COVID-19. The seminar was led by Professor Karl Lauterbach, Member of the German Parliament (SPD) and Professor of Health Economics and Epidemiology at the University of Cologne.

Prof. Lauterbach addressed relevant topics such as the trajectory of the epidemic in Germany, the main measures that were taken to control it, and how the decision-making process is carried out, in practice, to achieve the low rate of mortality observed in the country. He also shared the challenges posed by the epidemic from a political economy point of view and his advice for low- and middle-income countries.
