Lab Lunch: 11 February 2020 - Perdita Stevens

Title: Thinking about 2019-nCoV


Unless you've been living under a rock, you are by now aware that a new Coronavirus has emerged in Wuhan, China; at the time I write this abstract, there are about 17.5k confirmed infections worldwide, including 362 fatalities. I cannot pretend to any special expertise - if you've been following the news closely you may know as much as I - but I have long been fascinated by viruses, and besides, this one may (or may not) end up having a direct impact on our work. So I thought I would use the opportunity of a lab lunch to say something about Coronavirus, epidemics/pandemics and their control, information/misinformation, and the possible effects on the University.
