The impact of COVID-19 and the damages and opportunities it inflicted on the world is still unraveling. It might take years to assess the damages and analyze the lessons that we can learn from it.
As the next pandemic is only a matter of time, it is important to explore the lessons that the world learned from the COVID-19 crisis. In what ways can we do better in all stages of the pandemic: early signs, pandemic crisis management, and the formulation and execution of a proper exit strategy?
From March 22 to March 27, Wikistrat will run an online simulation to explore what effective policies should be executed by different state actors to better handle the next pandemic in all the stages of its appearance and limit its damages to a minimum.
To map and identify the best restrainment, containment, and recovery strategies and policies to use when preparing for the next pandemic.
Nation-states – Participants will be divided into four different groups, each representing a country with different demographics, geography, and economic status. These groups will be tasked with identifying the best restrainment, containment, and recovery strategies when facing a new pandemic.
Pandemic group – Played by the simulation management team together with leading pandemic experts. This group will challenge the different nation-states’ policies with new developments of the pandemic at every phase.
The simulation will run online for five days from March 22 to March 27. During this period, participation in the simulation is highly flexible. You will be able to participate from anywhere, at any time, for as long as you want.
