Event 201 was a "tabletop" exercise about a global pandemic. It was held on 18 October 2019.

Own words

On 24 January 2020 the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security issued a "Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise" that clarified that "We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019."[1]

Reporting

As of March 2020, Wikipedia reported that "The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences."[2]
