The Covid-19 workshop, led by Ph.D. Bustamante, was developed with the following agenda:
As indicated by Bustamante, among the thousands of viruses that infect us on a regular basis, very few cause disease. Likewise, a smaller number generate epidemics or pandemics, as in the case of Covid-19.
During the Covid-19 workshop held by the Chamber Of Mines Of Peru, it was reported that the pandemic generated by Covid-19 combines two factors: most people have no immunity and the disease is easily contagious.
