As the novel coronavirus spreads around the world, PreventEpidemics.org will serve as a hub of timely, accurate and easy-to-understand information on the virus and its global impact. PreventEpidemics.org provides country-level information on epidemic preparedness, clearly illustrating how prepared each country is to find, stop and prevent new disease threats, including nCov2019. The interactive map allows users to learn real-time information on outbreaks in progress and international flights to and from those countries.

Prioritizing preparedness saves lives and limits the economic impact of epidemics. Most of the world is not prepared, and as the novel coronavirus makes clear, the next epidemic is just around the corner.

ReadyScores for Countries with Confirmed Cases

The ReadyScore is a tool created by Resolve to Save Lives to show how prepared a country is to find, stop, and prevent epidemics. The ReadyScore is calculated using data from the World Health Organization’s Joint External Evaluation (JEE) tool—the gold standard for assessing countries’ preparedness that is both voluntary and transparent. The JEE report is similar to a report card, there are 19 areas of preparedness and response capacity that are scored, and the ReadyScore is the average score of those 19 scores. Learn more here.
