ITM Alumni webinar #7 – Corona in the world: Peru – Interventions, challenges, lessons learnt and way forward
Peru was one of the first Latin America countries to go into lockdown in March 2020 – but more than three months later the country is one of the region’s worst-hit by Covid-19 and has partially flattened the curve. Which type of interventions have been implemented? Which are the main challenges the country is facing in the fight against COVID-19? Which are the lessons learnt and way forward?
These questions will be discussed by ITM alumna Dr Larissa Otero (MPH 2008 and PhD 2016) and involved in the Corona-outbreak in Peru as epidemiologist.
Speaker: Dr Larissa Otero, Assistant Professor @Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru
Moderator: Dr Tine Verdonck, Researcher @Tropical Infectious Diseases Group @ Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium
Time: 07/07, 2020 03:00 PM CEST
