The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) will host a new event to examine the scientific evidence that can be used to inform practical solutions for mitigating and living with Covid-19. Hosted in partnership with Carnival Corporation, the event will take place on 23 July.
The event is open to the public and will share the latest scientific knowledge and evidence-based best practices related to prevention, detection, treatment and mitigation of the virus. It is the latest initiative to continue building global understanding concerning Covid-19’s impact on society, including travel and tourism.
The summit will consider practices from the leading scientists and health experts for mitigating the spread of the virus. Speakers and panellists represent a diverse range of science, research, clinical, academic, policy and business backgrounds, including amongst others, members of Scientists to Stop Covid-19, who have volunteered to participate.
Gloria Guevara, chief executive of WTTC said: “This event will be a powerful platform for harnessing the best thinking from across all fields of knowledge in the public and private sectors. The science of this virus is rapidly evolving, and these real-time insights will be invaluable in helping us determine evidence-based protection and mitigation measures to combat Covid-19. They will also help drive global alignment and collaboration on the frontiers of science and policy, which is critical to the survival of this important sector.”
