This event will discuss the high incidence of COVID-19 in Latin American countries. With a panel of experts from around the globe, we will aim to address why Latin America has been so strongly affected by COVID-19, as well as what sorts of policies, whether national or international, ought to be enacted in response to the pandemic.
