05 Mar Webinar: One Year On: Vaccines, New Variants and Economic Prospects
It has been over a year since COVID-19 was first recognised as a global pandemic. While vaccination programmes have begun in most countries, there has been much debate about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, especially with new variants of the virus emerging. It is also not clear how long it will take for the global economy to recover from this crisis. The SIIA held the webinar, “One Year On: Vaccines, New Variants and Economic Prospects”, with Dr. Tikki Pangestu, Visiting Professor, Yong Yoo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, former Director of Research Policy and Cooperation, World Health Organization, and Dr. Taimur Baig, Managing Director and Chief Economist, DBS Bank, on 23 February 2021, to examine current public health and the economic outlook for the months ahead.Missed the webinar?
