Public meeting of Wednesday 28th July at 12pm
The government has chosen to open up hospitality and travel as cases are going up dramatically, setting the stage for even larger increases in daily case numbers.
At this rate, will we be able to open schools and universities safely in September? Young people may be less likely to die from Covid-19, but "Long Covid" can have debilitating effects in the long-term that could leave us with multiple, population-wide health problems for the next few decades.
Therefore, it is important to move toward elimination of the virus and to implement concrete and effective solutions to open schools, universities and workplaces safely.
This discussion was led by Prof. Aoife McLysaght, TCD and included a Questions and Answers session.
For all meetings we welcome advance questions from members of the press, politicians, special interest groups and the public sent to: isagcovid at gmail.com, and invite you also to ask them live.
ISAG (Independent Scientific Advocacy Group) is offering the group’s expertise and experience to work together with Governments and the people to aim for elimination of COVID-19, meaning zero mystery cases in our shared islands. Founded by Anthony Staines, Gerry Killeen, and Tomás Ryan in June 2020, I.S.A.G. is independent of the government. All of our members are volunteers and they freely commit their time every week to discuss the COVID-19 science that underpins our governments’ response strategies. ISAG is a multidisciplinary group of scientists, academics, and researchers who have come together to advocate for a SARS-CoV-2 elimination strategy. I.S.A.G. has published several papers outlining its strategy and recommendations, and you can find them at www.isagcovid19.org
