COVID-19 “Second Wave” Forecast

Wednesday, July 15 | 4:00 - 5:15 pm EDT | Register

LTC 100 will present a freshly updated forecast of the Coronavirus and its potential impact on the U.S. healthcare system. Multiple sectors will be on this call – health systems, skilled nursing, home care and senior living.

- Will we see a pronounced second wave or multiple waves?

- With several states seeing big increases in infections in early June, are we seeing the beginning of a serious national wave, or regional waves?

- Have we learned any effective public health tools other than lockdowns?

- What is more likely, alternating increasing and decreasing waves of COVID, or a “steady burn”?

- What is our current daily death rate of about 1,000 per day likely to be on September 1? Jan. 1?

- What is our best guess on widespread vaccine deployment date?

We will also “game out” the healthcare impacts of a serious return of COVID:

- Do we think consumers will again massively postpone hospital elective surgeries?

- Can healthcare providers mitigate patient anxiety through proactive messaging and branding?

- Are providers still at big infection control risk if there is another serious wave? If so, what can they do now to better master infection control?

- How do you best “contingency plan” with a major COVID risk still present this fall/winter?

- How likely is the U.S. to do versus other countries over the 12 months?

- Is testing and contact tracing still part of the U.S. public health response?

- Will we see big variability in states’ ability to control COVID?
