On 15th May 2018, the John Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted Clade X, a pandemic tabletop exercise.

Clade X was a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of National Security Council–convened meetings of 10 US government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response. The exercise was designed to illustrate high-level strategic decisions and policies needed to prevent a severe pandemic or diminish its consequences should prevention fail.

The exercise was streamed live through the Center’s Facebook page (through four video installments) and can still be accessed here.
