These are worrying and unique times for the medical community and all those in the front lines of battling the COVID-19 threat. It is our job to protect our loved ones, our colleagues and our patients.
The ESCRS is committed to giving the ophthalmology community every support in the coming days, weeks and months. To encourage and facilitate communication, we have established an ESCRS COVID 19 interactive platform.
ESCRS EUROTIMES will publish updates on how the virus is affecting ophthalmologists in their daily practices and how they can keep themselves safe and help prevent the spread of the virus. We will be reporting from your colleagues, their hospitals, their governments, the ophthalmology industry and the European Commission. Our goal is to keep you updated in a concise and informed communication.
We would also like very much to hear from you. Please send in your local news stories, ideas, suggestions and we will share with the wider community. This interaction is needed more than ever in a time of self-isolation in our communities.
The ESCRS annual Congress is scheduled to open October 3rd 2020. We have no knowledge of what the situation will be at that time. We will keep you updated here and through all ESCRS communication channels.
The good wishes of the ESCRS Trustees, Council of Management and Executive are with you and your families to stay safe and well.
We want to hear from you with stories, suggestions or ideas, national recommendations and guidelines. Please send all your items to COVID19@escrs.org or use wetransfer.com for larger files
