Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: How to prepare for the next pandemic
Webinar Date: April 16, 2021
There was an audible global sigh of relief as the first COVID19 vaccines were approved; it was a sign that the pandemic had moved into the “recovery” phase.
While that might be true, ‘post-pandemic’ too is a phase in which the next inevitable outbreak is brewing.
Join us on this webinar as Dr. Sweta explains the pandemic life cycle and why we need to think about the recovery phase as critical for proactive preparedness – for the next pandemic.
