Chatham House Webinar: Weekly COVID-19 Pandemic Briefing – Following the Science?
Speakers:
Professor David Heymann CBE, Distinguished Fellow, Global Health Programme, Chatham House; Executive Director, Communicable Diseases Cluster, World Health Organization Organization (1998-03)
Dr Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief, The Lancet
Chair:
Emma Ross, Senior Consulting Fellow, Global Health Programme, Chatham House

As countries grapple with how best to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and the reverberations it is sending through their societies and economies, understanding of how the virus is behaving, and what measures might best combat it, continues to advance.

Join us for the nineteenth in a weekly series of interactive webinars on the coronavirus with Professor David Heymann and special guest, Richard Horton, helping us to understand the science and make sense of the latest developments in the global crisis. How are scientists working out what's going on with the virus and what interventions work and don't? Why does it seem like scientists change their minds so often or are slow to come round to new thinking? Are response decisions following the science?

Dr Horton is Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet. He was the first President of the World Association of Medical Editors and he is a Past-President of the US Council of Science Editors.

Professor Heymann is a world-leading authority on infectious disease outbreaks. He led the World Health Organization’s response to SARS and has been advising the organization on its response to the coronavirus
