To date, the coronavirus (COVID-19) – officially known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) – has been responsible for almost 40,000 deaths in England and Wales alone and has infected millions globally. The pandemic has changed almost every aspect of our lives and caused widespread anxiety and fear.
But what is coronavirus and how likely will it to continue to affect the population? And what are the realities of the pandemic and how is this influencing the government’s roadmap to recovery?
This week, our panellists are all experts within health and hygiene who will help us to understand the government’s plans and how businesses need to respond. Join us as we look at what the virus is, where it originated, and what we can expect over the coming weeks and months.
Sterling Crew will showcase why correct hand washing can keep the virus in check, while Peter Littleton, technical director at Christeyns Food Hygiene UK, will focus on the role of disinfectants and cleaning surfaces in preventing transmission. We also delighted to say that we will be joined by the Professional Advisor to the Chief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Sara Hayes, who will update us on how the virus is acting within society.
Taking place on 28 May, this webinar will be facilitated by professionals and expert panellists.
