COVID – VOA Town Hall – Social Distancing


With more than 240,000 infections and more than 10,000 deaths, the coronavirus epidemic is pushing people to modify their day to day lives. VOA correspondent Mariama Diallo reports on social distancing, one of the themes global health experts stressed at a VOA town hall.

In many countries lacking press freedom, it is difficult to get information about the Coronavirus. Even in countries with an abundance of information, some of it is neither fact nor science-based.

To shed some light and educate our audiences, Voice of America organized a one-hour virtual town hall, featuring leading experts to discuss the latest on COVId-19.

Some 500 First Nations health directors from coast to coast to coast are expected to take part in an online town hall meeting to discuss the impact of COVID-19, says Marion Crowe, CEO of First Nations Health Managers Association.
