The Miriam College Department of
International Studies invites you to a Zoom webinar on “Thinking About Data:
Measuring & Assessing ASEAN’s Responses to COVID-19.” It will be held
on November 26, 2020, 3:00-5:00 PM (Manila Time). Abstract: This webinar will
look at data from the global ranking of ASEAN responses to COVID-19 to show
that a) pre-Covid-19 conditions play a significant role in preventing the
spread of Covid-19, and b) high-income levels or the state of the public
health system are necessary, but not sufficient in mitigating the detrimental
effects of COVID-19. Using data from global rankings of responses such as
Oxford University’s COVID-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT) and
visualizing the data through Cobweb Chart and Expert.ai, this webinar will
focus on assessing variables and determinants to show why some ASEAN
countries were more successful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 than
economically advanced economies.To learn more about the topic, register here:
