COVID-19 – a pathologist's perspective (with a legal twist)

Our Life Sciences and Medical Malpractice team are holding a webinar on COVID-19 from a pathologist's perspective.

Duration: 1 hour

Event type: Webinar

Provided by: RPC

For this webinar we will be joined by Consultant Pathologist Professor John Schofield from Maidstone Hospital. Professor Schofield will address controversial questions, including:

•What really is COVID-19?
•Why are some people seriously ill while others don't even notice they have it?
•Will a vaccine give us a route back to normality?
•Is there any effective treatment?
•Why aren't we hearing more about antibody testing

Dorothy Flower will conclude the session by looking at Professor Schofield's observations in a legal context, asking:

•What novel claims do we now think are likely to arise from COVID-19?
•How can those claims be defended?
