COVID-19 variants, vaccines and the value of rapid testing

Zusammenfassung

As variants evolve, vaccination gaps persist, and mask measures relax, diagnostic testing remains a cornerstone in the global fight against COVID-19. This multi-disciplinary educational program will highlight variant surveillance and testing protocols from Europe to the U.S. and explore the imperative of COVID-19 testing protocols to optimize patient care and public health readiness with an uncertain upcoming influenza season.
