As the global coronavirus pandemic enters its second year governments are racing to vaccinate populations as novel variants emerge and people relax their vigilance around physical distancing, mask-wearing, and other public health interventions. Prospects for school reopening, renewed travel, and herd immunity remain uncertain for the coming years.
The world is currently witnessing a dramatic disruption of everyday life owing to the rapid progression of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
As the pandemic evolves, there is an urgent need to better understand its epidemiology, characterize its potential impact, and identify mitigatory strategies to avert pandemic-related problems.
There is a need for a tool to evaluate the extent to which public health policy and/or economic preparedness measures are effectively averting COVID-19 related problems.

This poses significant challenges for governments who need reliable test results to create evidence-driven pandemic response strategies.
