What went right and wrong in our nation’s response to the pandemic? What can we do to avoid the next one? In Lessons from the Covid War: An Investigative Report, the nonpartisan Covid Crisis Group offers crucial recommendations to prepare for the inevitable next public health crisis.

The Covid Crisis Group—led by UVA history professor Philip Zelikow, the former director of the 9/11 Commission—represents the expertise of some of the nation’s most accomplished epidemiologists, virologists, public health experts, clinicians, and government officials. The Miller Center helped launch Zelikow’s COVID Commission Planning Group, the precursor to the Covid Crisis Group.

Philip Zelikow is joined by Covid Crisis Group members Danielle Allen of Harvard, whose “Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience” report led to successful federal legislation and a presidential executive order, and Dr. Carter Mecher, the senior medical advisor for the Office of Public Health in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs during the pandemic. Miller Center Associate Professor Guian McKee, co-director of the Health Care Policy Project, moderates the conversation.
