Covid-19 Unmasked: Understanding the outbreak
Join us for a discussion among New Zealand’s top experts on COVID-19 and how our country has approached the global pandemic. Experts will give insight into the situation from the viewpoint of scientists involved with the Ministry of Health, from the biomedical makeup of the virus, to its evolution, the clinical approach, and how to better prepare for the next public health emergency. The event will finish with an audience Q&A session.
