CLADE X - A Pandemic Exercise: Segment 1 | Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security | May 15, 2018 (Video)
I'm doing a series of posts related to the role of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in running simulations of global pandemics.
I have covered this subject before, but this time I have decided to go a little further back in the timeline and get the information straight from the horse's mouth.

(Segment 1 of 4) Clade X is a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security on May 15, 2018, in Washington, DC. The exercise simulates a series of National Security Council-convened meetings of 10 US government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response.
Drawing from actual events, Clade X identifies important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience. Lessons learned from Clade X will be distilled by the Center and shared broadly.
