Te Papa Hauora Health Precinct hosted a public information evening on Coronavirus Covid-19 Monday 9 March where more than 150 people got the chance to ask questions of a panel of Canterbury-based experts.

Thank you to our panellists, particularly Professor David Murdoch, for participating in our public information evening on the rapidly developing Coronavirus Covid-19 situation.

The evening was a unique opportunity for members of the public to hear accurate information from experts within Canterbury’s health system who have key roles in responding to and managing Covid-19 in our community.

The evening began with a presentation followed by an expert panel discussion and question time.

Videos of the evening can be viewed on  this page.

Professor Murdoch’s message was that people could make a difference by following simple but proven methods of limiting disease spread.
