About the Webinar series:

Over the past week, there has been an increase in the numbers of people who test positive for COVID-19.  Reports from hospitals also show an increase in admissions.  What do these increases mean and why are they happening now?

Within the past two weeks, vaccination programs have been rolled out in hospitals.  Health workers are getting their shots.  Are the frontliners safer now that there is a vaccine?  How is the vaccination program doing?

Previously: Are we ready for vaccines against COVID-19?

In this webinar, we will take a closer look at the increasing number of cases and how hospitals are coping.  The main presentation will be from the Philippine General Hospital with Dr. Gap Legaspi.

Be on top of the latest developments in the pandemic, how hospitals are preparing and what we can all do to stay safe.

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected! Together we can STOP COVID DEATHS!
