In the early days of the Covid pandemic, New Zealand’s government made it clear they would be putting science in the driver’s seat. What does that mean and is it what happened? What did we learn along the way? How might things play out going forward? And what do we know now to better prepare for the next time? Catalyst is privileged to host five of New Zealand’s foremost Covid 19 experts for this panel: virologist Prof Vernon Ward, Covid modeller Prof Shaun Hendy, elimination strategy advocate Dr Amanda Kvalsvig, genomic sequencing expert Dr Jemma Geoghegan and immunologist Dr Anna Brooks. Panel discussion then Q&A.
Sunday, June 20, 4-6pm, Queenstown Memorial Centre. Registration required to secure your seat and for Covid tracing purposes. Entry by koha at the door, with all proceeds going to Wakatipu Community Foundation’s Greatest Needs Fund.
