Global health security is a growing field that continues to evolve. The COVID-19 pandemic has especially emphasised the greatest needs and opportunities for progress in low- and middle-income countries, where systems are not yet in place to address emerging infectious disease threats, as well as in high-income countries, which also present large systems-related gaps. Developing public health systems is, therefore, very important. Dr Leonard Peruski (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US) talked to us about the laboratory response to COVID-19, how it has evolved and what important lessons were learned from the pandemic.
Evolution of the Laboratory Response to COVID-19 and Priorities for the Future’ was presented at the annual International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases (ICEID), August 7–10, 2022.
