Epidemiologists and infectious disease experts are asking, is COVID-19 a “Once-in-a-Lifetime” Pathogen? Or the newest in an accelerating global threat pattern?
In this can’t-miss session, scientist and successful biotech entrepreneur Professor William A. Haseltine shares surprising perspectives on the COVID-19 outbreak and what it means for healthcare providers entire health systems in South Asia and Africa as well as the U.S. and Europe. Dr. Haseltine draws fascinating connections between the current epidemic and early responses to HIV and anthrax. As a pioneering scientist involved in identifying and studying viruses including the HIV retrovirus, Dr. Haseltine was one of the first to recognize the danger such viruses posed and to accurately (and controversially) predict the magnitude of the HIV epidemic.
In this live interview session, Dr. Haseltine helps health professionals understand the current threat posed by the novel COVID-19 coronavirus. The session covers:
• How should health systems respond in the face of this outbreak?
• What lessons are we learning today about future outbreaks?
• What should we all be doing today to prepare for tomorrow’s outbreaks?
