ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
COVID-19: State of the Nation (30 mins)
The world has not known a pandemic such as COVID-19 since 1918. Millions have been infected, hundreds of thousands have died. The world, quite simply, came to a halt as a result of a single virus.
As countries have taken tentative steps towards easing lockdown restrictions, citizens have had to adapt to a new normal. Handwashing habits will probably never be the same again. Social distancing may see handshakes and hugging abandoned for a generation and face coverings are commonplace.
The toll on our health is not yet known, but there is no doubt that it will be significant. Cancer referrals dropped by up to 75% in April and mental health helplines have seen an unprecedented surge in calls. The pandemic has been with us for months, but the legacy of COVID-19 for our mental and physical health will last for years.
