COVID-19 second wave: what has changed
As we approach the end of the year, Europe is faced with a second wave of coronavirus, with many states going back into lockdown. The situation seems to reflect what happened in March when COVID-19 first appeared in Europe, and governments took drastic measures to keep their healthcare systems running. However, some things have changed since the first wave. Among them, the readiness of healthcare systems and industry. In this episode of MedTech ON AIR, we explore this and more with MedTech Europe's Director for International Affairs, Jesus Rueda Rodriguez.
