The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our working and personal lives like no other event in recent memory. An unprecedented level of research over the past five months has advanced knowledge of the disease, but many uncertainties remain. In this Q&A, John McConnell, Editor of The Lancet Infectious Diseases, was able to separate the knowns from the unknowns of COVID-19, whilst speculating on how the pandemic might evolve in the UK and elsewhere, including the developing world. He also offered some excellent insights into what concrete next steps should be taken for the world to defeat this novel disease. This webinar was moderated by Mahmood Ahmed, Chairman of the Aga Khan Foundation UK National Committee.
