About the webinar
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unroll, more and more countries are assessing the population health impact of COVID-19. The burden of disease approach offers a framework that allows for comprehensive and comparable population health impact assessments, making it possible to compare the impact of COVID-19 to that of other diseases and risk factors.
In this webinar, we will unveil some initial estimates of the burden of COVID-19 at population level. We will also zoom in on post COVID conditions, which constitute a significant, but to date highly uncertain, contribution to the overall COVID-19 disease burden.
This webinar is jointly organized by the unCoVer network and the European Burden of Disease Network.
