COVID-19 Research Questions and Our Practice From the Wuhan
Speaker: Zhuan Bian, Dean and Professor, School
& Hospital of Stomatology, Wuhan University, China
Live Participants: Claim Continuing Education
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has become a worldwide public health threat due to its high infectivity. Inhalation of respiratory droplets or aerosols from the infected individuals during face to face exposure is found to be the most common transmission routes of SARS-CoV-2. Direct contact of a virus-infected surface is another way of transmission. The particularity of aerosol production and prolonged close contact to their patients rendered dentists the highest risk group for contracting COVID-19. Moreover, researchers have identified the potential role of oral mucosa in SARS-CoV-2 infection. In this presentation Zhuan BIAN will share his experiences from the School & Hospital of Stomatology, Wuhan University, China in infection control in dental clinic and student management in dental education. There are still questions in need of further dental research in combating with the virus.
- Infection control in dental clinic and student management in dental education during COVID-19 pandemic.
- COVID-19 research questions.
