While the COVID-19 pandemic has dominated the news, a number of other public health and scientific advancements are worth highlighting. “This has been a year of challenges, but also of innovation, modernization, and advancement in public health,” said Dr. Robert R. Redfield, CDC Director. “I am hopeful for the future and the months to come as CDC continues to secure the safety of the American people and this Nation.” CDC COVID-19 Response at a Glance CDC's COVID-19 response is unprecedented. A few numbers begin to tell the tale: • 7,800 CDC personnel have supported the outbreak response • 1,423 CDC deployers have conducted 2,619 deployments to 230 cities across the United States and abroad. • 186 COVID-19 studies (and counting) published in CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) • 27 Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) calls and webinars drew more than 250,000 participants from the healthcare community • 38+ million times people have used CDC's online Coronavirus Self-Checker • 596,000+ calls and emails to CDC-INFO • 40,000+ inquiries from doctors, nurses, or other clinical staff and health departments received by CDC • 2.7+ billion social media impressions on 8,100 CDC social media posts on the outbreak • 2 billion times people viewed COVID information on CDC websites
