Two years after the first UK lockdown, the Royal Society of Medicine has released a three-minute video offering a retrospective snapshot of the pandemic as it unfolded.
In clips from the RSM’s renowned COVID-19 Series of webinars, healthcare leaders from the UK and around the world talk about the emergence of the disease in early 2020 and its devastating effects on the world’s population.
There are reminders of the challenges overcome by healthcare professionals on the front line, the public health measures put in place to protect populations around the world, and the science and discovery that ultimately led to the new treatments and vaccines that have allowed the return to a semblance of normality.
A special 100th episode of the RSM COVID-19 Series takes place on 31 March. Speakers include key figures from the UK’s Covid response, including Professor Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer, and Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer.
