Covid-19 Online Forum

Although the Covid-19 is still roaming around the globe, there has been a great deal of knowledge gained and research progress made in the past six months. The Hong Kong Academy of Sciences will host an online forum on COVID-19 to review and discuss the latest development in diagnosis, rapid test, treatment and immunisation for SARS-CoV-2. The speakers will comment on the scientific aspects of the pandemic but they will speak at a sufficiently general level for a public audience.

The forum will be held June 30th, Tuesday, 9-11am HKT
