Management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Canton Zurich

Public health authorities in the canton of Zurich faced major challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic in the years 2021 and 2022. Throughout this period, we helped the canton’s pandemic response force to manage the crisis on both the strategic and operational levels. Our interdisciplinary teams drafted guidelines for deployment planning, coordinated the introduction of vaccination centers and mobile vaccination units, and developed anticipatory scenarios of the pandemic’s projected development.
