As the world experiences these trying times in global Public Health, I sincerely identify with our members, friends, colleagues and partners in the US, the UK, Africa and other parts of the world, where the coronavirus crisis is ravaging. I do express my profound amity and solidarity with people directly and remotely affected by the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I do wish for speedy recovery and stability to all our contacts and governments across the world.

Finally, and most importantly, keep well and follow the stay home guidance of the World Health Organisation on the prevention of the spread of the virus. Protect yourself and those around you.

This too shall pass!
