COVID-19: Updates from Singapore is a weekly webcast forum for leading clinicians, scientists, public health officials and policy makers with expertise in SARS CoV-2 and its associated infection COVID-19 to share insights into their field of study.
Episodes will include updates on world and regional COVID-19 related epidemiology, a detailed COVID-19 topic review by a different guest lecturer each week, followed by a panel discussion and audience questions. Additionally, polls taken during the webinar will provide audience members an opportunity to share their experiences with fellow attendees and faculty.
Topics have been selected to span the breadth of the COVID-19 experience: virology, clinical, laboratory, public health, epidemiology, economics, immunology, bioethics and others. The guest speakers are chosen for their in-depth knowledge of the topic, ability to communicate complex subject matter and understanding of the unique aspects of COVID-19’s impact on Asia. Our audience will be exposed to the latest COVID-19 related research, clinical updates, and thoughtful exploration of the social and economic impact of COVID-19 from the frontlines in Singapore.
