Unprecedented challenges continue to arise from responding to the Covid-19 pandemic. A new report, “Managing The Next Crisis: Twelve Principles For Dealing With Viral Uncertainty” by Katherine Barrett, Richard Greene and Donald Kettl, provides recommendations for how the government can take action in addressing potential future crises.

  • Richard Greene, visiting fellow at the IBM Center for the Business of Government, said the report found the federal government did not gather adequate data about masks, case numbers, fatality rates or vaccine safety and lacked a clear tracking system.
  • Greene said trust in government has been an issue for many years and said his team learned the most effective communications about the pandemic came from scientists and experts as opposed to elected officials.
  • Greene said one of the major differences between Covid-19 and other crises throughout American history is that it affected all 50 states.
