ERS International Congress 2020 virtual - 6. 9. special feature: COVID-19 live programme

21. 08. 2020

Sunday 6 September

We are pleased to announce a day’s worth of free online sessions dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 that will take place in addition to the Congress programme.

COVID-19 has been a priority topic for us all in recent months, and the live programme that will be accessible to all has been created in recognition of the impact that it continues to have on the work of the respiratory community.

Presentations throughout the day will include:

  • Keynote by ERS Past President Tobias Welte and chaired by ERS President Elect Anita Simonds and ERS Science Council Chair Chris Brightling.
  • Basic science, including virus biology and host response.
    More information
  • Epidemiology, including European and world views, the tracking of symptoms, risk factors for getting infection and severity biomarkers once infected.
    More information
  • Management prevention, including public health approaches, prophylactic drug interventions and vaccine trials.
    More information
  • Management, including respiratory support (pre-ventilation, ventilation and ECMO), anti-virals, anti-inflammatories, other drugs and convalescent plasma.
    More information
  • Impact in children and in those with premorbid respiratory disease, including ILD, lung cancer and airways disease.
    More information
  • Post-COVID, including care pathways and virtual consultations, rehabilitation recovery, long-term impact and immuno-preservation risk of re-infection.
    More information

The COVID-19 sessions will be free to access on the day from the official ERS Congress website home page, with ERS members only needing to log in to their myERS account. Non-members can create a myERS account for free and are encouraged to do so in advance.
