De Charles Goerens organiséiert den 1. Oktober um 9:30 Auer zesumme mat der Europadeputéiert Claudia Gamon e Webinar zu de Superspreader zu Ischgl.

De Link zum Webinar ass de folgenden.

“Not another Ischgl.” It is a phrase that has become familiar ever since the small ski-resort in Austria became known as “ground zero” of the coronavirus in Europe. From the small Austrian town famous for its slopes and after-ski parties, the virus was catapulted all across Europe, thus accelerating the propagation of Covid-19 in the EU. Between January and March 2020, over 10.000 EU citizens were directly infected in Ischgl. 28 people died.

While Ischgl is surely the best known “superspreader-location” it is by far the only one. And although researchers may still be probing the propagation of Covid19, evidence suggest that such locations have a strong impact on the course and severity of the pandemic.

How did Ischgl become such a significant accelerator? And how can such a scenario be prevented in the future?

Together with journalists, researchers and health officials, we aim at:
1. investigating what went wrong in Ischgl and better understanding such super-spreader locations
2. drawing conclusions from the events in Ischgl to be able to contain such cross-border health-threats more effectively in the future
If we can (re)act more coherently and efficiently to superspreaders, we may be able avoid “yet another Ischgl”.
