The virologist and immunologist Margarita del Val was one of the first people in Spain to sound the alarm about what was about to happen: “We should have reacted as soon as Italy collapsed”, he assured in an interview with elDiario.es. One year after the Spanish Government decreed the state of alarm for the first time, the researcher at the Center for Molecular Biology Severo Ochoa (CBMSO-CSIC) will talk this Tuesday, March 9 at 5:00 p.m. with Ignacio Escolar about the situation of the pandemic and what we can expect in the months to come.
Margarita del Val: “I prefer to be prepared for several years and then be shorter”
Margarita del Val coordinates the Global Health platform that the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) launched the same day that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus pandemic, a structure that brings together more than 300 research groups from all over Spain. With her, the director of elDiario.es will talk about the epidemic situation, the horizon that awaits us, the steps taken in research and the great keys that remain to be resolved.
Readers and partners of elDiario.es may ask the expert their questions about the pandemic, the evolution of the virus and its variants and the effectiveness of the vaccination campaign.
You can leave your question for her in the comments of this news or in the form you will find at the end of it. The meeting can be followed live on eldiario.es, through Facebook Live and in Twitter, with Periscope. We will wait for you!
