Delivered by infectious disease expert Dr Muge Cevik, this keynote talk will provide an overview of the global epidemiology of Covid-19, mainly focusing on disparities in transmission, severity and outcomes. It will also summarise the challenging and often misinterpreted but consequential epidemiological aspects such as asymptomatic transmission, changes in the severity of disease and transmissibility of variants, and the role of vaccination, focusing on better ways to evaluate these areas going forward.

Online lecture with options to participate in follow up Q&A and a small group session.

This is the third lecture in the St Andrews Summer Lectures Series on Global Health, which addresses the societal challenges arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic. During the virtual series, you will hear from leading academics and engage in conversations on a range of related topics, including government and policy making, science communication, and psychology.

Tickets for the series range from £50 to £500 (credited and certificated options available).

If you are a current student or member of staff at the University of St Andrews, please email in the first instance.
