The era of pandemics

Baron Peter Piot is a doctor and an internationally renowned Belgian microbiologist.

Former founding Executive Director of the United Nations UNAIDS programme, he is the current director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where he teaches. He is also an advisor for several international institutions.

Peter Piot’s conference is entitled: The era of pandemics.

According to Piot, what many scientists long feared has become a reality: the world is facing a virulent COVID-19 pandemic and must work collectively to control it.

The good news is that science has gained the upper hand in the fight against the deadly virus. An unprecedented effort has given rise to several reliable and effective vaccines.

Piot warns, however, that we must be prepared to face other major pandemics in the future. Our world may well be entering an “era of pandemics”, a consequence of our growing inability to live in harmony with nature and its ecosystems.
