Main content

Despite many warnings that it was only a matter of time before a new rapidly- spreading and dangerous infection would occur, the coronavirus pandemic caught the authorities off guard in almost every country in the world. It has revealed a great lack of knowledge about how to limit and manage the spread of infection. It also reveals a lack of knowledge about how the pandemic affects our society in other ways.

The Pandemic Centre wants to contribute knowledge about pandemics, and how they affect society. On this page you will be able to find information about pandemics; both research-articles and other dissemination on the subject.
