Four Key Insights for Preventing the Next Pandemic

In the latest issue of the Pathologist, Dr. Jack Regan discusses the strategic priorities and technologies that could prevent the next global pandemic:

Our inability to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2 has largely been due to the lack of sufficient surveillance and diagnostic infrastructure – including better point-of-care testing.

Arguably, our failure to adequately prepare for a novel pathogen has resulted in the COVID-19 pandemic, which, at the time of publishing, has claimed over 605,000 lives and caused 2.3 million hospitalizations in the US alone.
