CIGH Director discusses Omicron and global health security

Posted in CIGH In the News

CIGH Director, Dr. Charles Holmes wrote in theĀ Council on Foreign Relations’ Think Global Health (new window), “The global reactions to the omicron variant over the past few days provide a good reminder of what remains undone in terms of the global response to COVID-19 and pandemic preparedness in general. The wave of travel disruption, media speculation, and shaky financial markets demonstrate not only that COVID is far from over, but also that the world is far from prepared for this or the next global pandemic.”
