Bhramar Mukherjee, a U-M School of Public Health biostatistics, and epidemiology professor Maxwell Salvatore, a doctoral student, and lead author, discuss their new study on the effectiveness of public health interventions in India. The researchers found that if there were stronger public health measures at the sign of a resurgence of COVID-19 in India in early 2021, then the mortality rate would have reduced by 40% during the second wave, and control of transmission would have increased. Mukherjee and Salvatore offer insight concerning future responses based on epidemiologic triggers and humane considerations.
