The World Travel & Tourism Council will be hosting a science summit event to overlook the scientific evidence to find practical solutions for dealing with Covid-19. The event, in partnership with Carnival Corporation, will take place on July 23rd from 14:00-17:30 GMT.
The science summit is initiated to build a global understanding concerning COVID-19’s impact on society, including travel and tourism
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. The summit will showcase practices from leading scientists and health experts for minimizing the spread of the virus. Speakers and panelists, who have volunteered to participate, represent a diverse range of science, research, clinical, academic, policy and business backgrounds, including amongst others, members of Scientists to Stop Covid-19,
Gloria Guevara, WTTC chief executive, said: “I was excited when Arnold, on behalf of Carnival Corporation, approached me with this idea. 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.”
