This webinar will compare and contrast the epidemiological patterns and intervention strategies (risk communication, face masking, social distance, personal hygiene, stay home order, tracing and isolation, etc) among 4 countries in Pacific Rim Region, will summarize experience and lessons learned during the Covid-19 prevention and control, and will identify potential challenges, solutions, and opportunities for control of Covid-19 pandemic.
