Funders and researchers around the world are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic at urgent speed, with greater effectiveness and collaboration than ever before. In the past 8 months, the global health research community has collectively generated and shared a huge amount of knowledge in particular into the clinical characterisation, behavioural insights, genetics, epidemiology, viral pathogenesis, clinical management and diagnosis of COVID-19. This is built on substantial prior preparation, with researchers, public health professionals, funders and multilateral bodies in this field having anticipated and prepared for a pandemic for many years. Further knowledge is needed however to control this pandemic and for safe easing of public health measures.
