My pick of the week is this moving CBS TV program titled Bravery and Hope which takes a look at 7 days inside the operations of the Montefiore Health System in New York. Located in the Bronx, Montefiore has had the highest number of COVID-19 cases in New York. It’s a must-watch.

My reading pick of the week is a blog that went viral (no pun intended) by a biology professor in UMass at Dartmouth that explains the spread of coronavirus in a remarkably lucid manner. As businesses and institutions press forward with reopening plans, the blog is a practical guide to consumers and workers who maybe exposed to the risks of infection.

As the nation makes its initial move to re-open some businesses and ease the economy back to pre-pandemic levels, the one thought on everyone’s minds is: when will we be back to pre-pandemic levels of normalcy? The Economist describes what a 90% economy will look and feel like.

The subject line this week is a nod to Winston Churchill’s assessment of an early British victory in WW2. The war would go on for another four years. My favorite read this week is this long-form piece by Bill Gates that summarizes the scientific efforts to find a vaccine for COVID-19, and what a return to normal life might look like.

In a thoughtful piece in Health Affairs, Aaron Miri, CIO of Dell Medical School, and co-author Daniel O’Neill lay out the case for accelerating data infrastructure for COVID-19 surveillance and management.

This past week, we saw big tech step up big time in the effort to find a technology-led solution to the Covid-19 crisis. Traditional rivals Google and Apple are getting together to develop a contact tracing app that will use Bluetooth technology to identify potential hotspots of coronavirus transmission and quickly identify and isolate individuals suspected of being infected.
