Professor Raina MacIntyre
Raina MacIntyre is head of the Biosecurity Program at The Kirby Institute and NHMRC Principal Research Fellow. She has a research track record in respiratory transmissible viral infections including influenza, seasonal coronaviruses and MERS Coronavirus, and control of epidemic respiratory infections, including through vaccines and face masks.
The COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving. This update will focus on the epidemiology, pillars of public health disease control, health workers as a high-risk group, and emerging evidence around asymptomatic and aerosol transmission. The lockdown, social distancing, schools, universal face mask use and the herd immunity myth will be discussed in the context of an exit strategy. Other topics such as duration of immunity, reinfection potential and latest drug treatment data will be touched on.
