in this video, Amesh A. Adalja, MD, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security describes his experiences during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

“As soon as I realized that there was sustained human-to-human transmission … that’s when I realized that COVID-19 was not going to be a containable virus and that a pandemic was going to occur,” he said.

Adalja also explains what topped his list of global health threats before the pandemic — no surprise, it’s also a respiratory virus — and what it was like caring for patients during the first US wave.

The video is part of a new Healio series called “Life during COVID” that explores how the pandemic has reshaped American society and medicine. The first story in the series, an oral history of the early months of the pandemic, can be found here.
