On the night of December 30, 2019, ISID’s Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases (ProMED) Deputy Editor, Dr. Marjorie Pollack posted a request for information to the ProMED network after being contacted by a trusted colleague about a cluster of undiagnosed pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. Through her previous experience with SARS decades earlier, Marjorie knew this new threat must be taken seriously. Luckily she sounded the alarm, and in doing so was the first to provide a detailed report alerting the international infectious diseases community to what evolved into what we now know as the global COVID-19 pandemic. With her colleague, Dr. Uzma Aamir, this webinar is an up-close and personal discussion with Marjorie, moderated by Dr. Therese Umuhoza.
