Call for expertise – government inquiry on emerging diseases and learnings from Covid-19
22 January 2023
The Microbiology Society are coordinating a response to the recently launched government inquiry on emerging diseases and learnings from Covid-19.
In 2021, the Science and Technology Committee published their Report: Coronavirus: lessons learned to date. They recently held a follow-up session which heard updates on the progress government has made in implementing recommendations.
The Committee is now seeking to examine how the government is applying lessons learned from the Covid-19 pandemic, and which of these could be applied to prevent the emergence and spread of diseases with pandemic potential. If you are a Microbiology Society member with expertise in the area and believe the committee would benefit from your insight, you can contribute to our Microbiology Society response.
