This is an opportunity for members of the public to hear from experts and ask questions about this rapidly developing situation. The following issues will be covered:
• Understanding the disease: What is the virus, its features, nature, and how does it infect and affect us?
• Protection: How we can protect ourselves, our families/whanau and community, and what can we tell our tamariki?
• Management: How prepared are we, what actions are being taken to prevent and control the virus, and management plans for an outbreak?
The evening will begin with a presentation followed by an expert panel discussion and question time, led by international infectious diseases expert Professor David Murdoch.
