On Thursday 02 April 2020 at 7pm, we hosted the first series of virtual live talks on our Facebook page. The first talk was about “COVID-19 Pandemic” and it was delivered by Dr Ammar Darwish, a Staff Surgeon at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). In his talk, Dr Ammar gave an introduction on COVID-19 and its causes and consequence. He talked about its symptoms and what measures can be taken when someone gets infected. The importance of self-isolation and social distancing as a means to counter the spreading of the virus were also highlighted in the talk. The talk was delivered in Arabic and it was highly engaging and interactive.
