About the Event

In early December 2019 a cluster of cases of an unusual pneumonia appeared in Wuhan, China. By early January, the city closed their wet market (open air markets selling mostly dead animals) having identified it as the epicenter of the new virus. Shortly after, researchers identified the novel Coronavirus as the cause. Despite closing the city of Wuhan (over 11 million people), by early February reported cases totaled over 20,000, mostly in China but with outbreaks in over a dozen other countries. By the end of February, reports identified over 80,000 cases and nearly 2,800 deaths with ongoing transmission in Korea, Italy, Iran and elsewhere.  Dr. Jeffrey Drazen joined us for our annual Brennan Lecture to review the story of this world-wide concern as it unfolded—and as it continues to unfold. Dr. Drazen, MD is the NEJM Group Editor (New England Journal of Medicine), the chief of the Division of Medical Communications and a physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He is also the Distinguished Parker B. Francis Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Sponsored by The Brennan Family and WinCam.
