Covid-19 and the management of ‘superspreaders’: Lesson learnt from Ischgl
While researchers are still trying to learn more about the propagation of Covid19, evidence suggests that so-called superspreader-locations such as Ischgl, Mulhouse and co. have a strong impact on the spread of the virus. According to current findings, around 11.000 EU citizens were directly infected in the ski-resort of Ischgl. 27 people died. From the ski-resort, the virus spread to countless EU-countries, thus accelerating the propagation of the coronavirus... How did this happen? And how can such a scenario be prevented in the future?
In the first panel, we will try, together with investigative journalists and researchers, to understand how Ischgl could turn into a „ground zero“ of the spread of the coronavirus in Europe. A second panel of representatives of the European Commission and the ECCD as well as national experts will discuss and assess the measures and mechanisms that exist at EU-level to contain the spread of cross-border threats and identify shortcomings.
