SARS-CoV-2 Webinar-An Update - October 16, 2020

An Update on SARS-CoV-2
Friday, October 16,
14:00-16:00 CEST

The first IABS webinar (May 27th) provided insight into what was known at that point in time about SARS-CoV-2:
the epidemiology worldwide; the disease from an immunology viewpoint and the development of vaccines against the virus.

This 3rd International Alliance for Biological Standardization COVID-19 webinar brought together a broad range of
international stakeholders, including academia, regulators, funders and industry, with a considerable delegation
from low- and middle-income countries, to provide an update on
the virology, epidemiology and immunology of, and the vaccine development for SARS-CoV-2,
six months after the previous webinar.

 Although SARS-CoV-2 shows limited evolution, which is beneficial for vaccine development,
recombination of SARS-CoV-2 with another CoV has led to enhanced human-to-human transmissibility of the virus.
