Publicación: New York : McKinsey & Company, 2020Descripción física: 12 p.Serie: (Healthcare Systems & Services, Public Sector, and Social Sector Practices)Notas: Sumario: The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed overlooked weaknesses in the world's infectiousdisease- surveillance and -response capabilities weaknesses that have persisted in spite of the obvious harm they caused during prior outbreaks. Many countries, including some thought to have strong response capabilities, failed to detect or respond decisively to the early signs of SARSCoV-2 outbreaks. That meant they started to fight the virus's spread after transmission was well established. Once they did mobilize, some nations struggled to ramp up public communications, testing, contact tracing, critical-care capacity, and other systems for containing infectious diseases. Ill-defined or overlapping roles at various levels of government or between the public and private sectors resulted in further setbacks. Overall, delayed countermoves worsened the death toll and economic damage.Materia / lugar / evento: COVID-19 Pandemias Sistemas sanitarios Planes de emergencia Atención sociosanitaria Salud pública Gestión de crisis Otros autores: Craven, Matt
