Dr. Childs will discuss the current Covid 19 pandemic and the two other significant coronavirus outbreaks within the last two decades, SARS and MERS. He looks at why these viruses are more readily controlled that Covid 19, making them less concerning. He traces how these zoonotic pathogens cross species to ultimately cause human infection and disease and what sort of future expectations and projections we may experience. Dr Childs looks at potential game changers such as vaccines and other drugs but focuses on the importance of contact tracing, isolation and quarantine. He will touch upon historical examples of flu epidemics. There will be lots of time for questions and answers during and post presentation.
