The opinion of many virologists differs from that of WHO. We are faced with the fact that such virologists refuse to participate in the conference because of WHO's participation.
Well, the WHO's opinion on COVID-19 is clear to the world. We are also interested in the opinion of the world's leading virologists.
All those who refused when they learned that WHO would be speaking, we invite them to cooperate and announce that WHO representatives will not be present at the conference.
As a result of the conference, there will be also formed the group, dealing with 2 issues:
Developing proposals to address the crisis resulting from the coronavirus pandemic
Developing practical recommendations for the treatment of COVID-19
The group will include the best virologists in the world
Subscribe to our news. Starting from October 10, we will issue a weekly press release on the situation in the world through the efforts of the group.
