Members of the MJH Life Sciences COVID-19 Coalition weighed in on the latest coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic news in a recent survey.
The MJH Life Sciences COVID-19 Coalition is a partnership with 10 nationally recognized experts in infectious disease, public health, epidemiology, and virology, who work to generate the most accurate, up-to-the-minute information on the pandemic's ever-evolving impact on health care professionals and the patients they treat through live, biweekly webinar events, white papers, and surveys.
Initial members of the coalition advisory panel are:
According to the survey responses, all of the members of the coalition said that they do not believe that a COVID-19 vaccine will be released by November 1. They also identified engagement and uptake as the biggest challenge to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ strategy for distributing a COVID-19 vaccine.
Coalition members also recommended that Americans receive their annual flu vaccination as soon as possible, according to the findings.
Additionally, according to the coalition, the biggest COVID-19 myth identified is that herd immunity is right around the corner. Seventy-five percent of members believe we’ll soon see a significant spike in COVID-19 cases in the United States.
The coalition will continue to offer bi-weekly webinars with discussions, viewpoints, and audience Q&A, and an array of insight pieces on key COVID-related topics.
