[WEBINAR] COVID-19 Clinical Update with Professor David Wilkinson (Week 8)

Posted on

In this webinar, Professor David Wilkinson provides an informed clinical update and advice for doctors in our ongoing series on COVID-19.

Prof Wilkinson is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Macquarie University, as well as a general practitioner, public health medicine specialist and epidemiologist. He gathers details every day from resources available to few, so that he can put together a presentation that is unique from any other COVID-19 information out there.

Some of the topics covered in this webinar include:

  • A comprehensive update on the epidemic in Australia
  • COVIDSafe app security considerations
  • Important resources such as COVID-19 Research Explorer and Safe Work Australia
  • The path out of isolation
  • The challenges associated with moving from the health crisis to economic recovery
  • How can we prevent another health crisis?

We are here to support medical professionals facing these challenging circumstances. Each week, we will hold two webinars + Q&A with expert guidance to assist you in navigating this evolving international public health situation from a clinical and business point of view.

Questions addressed by Professor Wilkinson during the webinar:

  • If we are contacted via the app, does it mean we must self isolate? Supposing the contact was with a patient and we were wearing PPE?
  • COVIDSafe (Australian digital tracing) appears to be a valid tool and an important part of the strategy, so its take-up in a select subpopulation such as all registrants and participants of an education course event could be the caveat in allowing the congregate to take place, then?
  • How is an asymptomatic case traced with the app?
  • If Singapore had a blind spot such as the migrant worker population, where would Australia have its blind spot?
  • How can we be sure that the government will use this app for tracking COVID-19 purposes only?

  1. Hi David, Just wondering where you got that graph you showed at the beginning of the presentation with the 5 day running average over the location-based outbreaks? Thanks so much.
