Comment on Rishu et al. Time required to initiate outbreak and pandemic observational research.
- We applaud the work of Rishu and colleagues in tracking the timelines to initiation of outbreak and pandemic observational research. Through this work they highlight the challenges in being prepared with a clinical research response in the next pandemic. Pandemics are unpredictable but also recurrent. Recent experience of Ebola and Zika outbreaks highlight the devastating impact these outbreaks have on the health, economy and security of communities for generations to come.
