Challenges with COVID-19 virus

The world population and medical community faces a tremendous challenge with the COVID-19 virus spreading rapidly. Our Chinese colleagues have dealt with this first and appear through sound policy decisions and good medical practice to have reduced infection rates. Europe is the new epicenter and we are sure other regions will also face increased infection rates and stretched healthcare systems.
