Covid-19 Briefing materials from McKinsey: Global health and crisis response

Here's a comprehensive presentation on what we know about the coronavirus and its economic impact so far (with some predictions on when normalcy might return). Some important points are summarized below. The link to the complete presentation is below that.

- Herd immunity will eventually be achieved through a combination of Covid-19 vaccine deployment (most important factor), effect of previous vaccinations (eg: BCG vaccine), Covid-19 infection leading to immunity, other coronavirus infections (T-cell cross-reactivity), reduced RO factor (because of biological, socio-behavioral and environmental factors)
- There are 278 candidates in the pipeline for COVID-19 vaccines
- Corporate stress in Q2 2020 is at the same point as the 2009 trough, but in only 4 to 6 months vs. 2 years
- Degree of economic uncertainty has fallen more than half as initial unknowns about the virus have dissipated
