The John Adams Institute together with the Joep Lange Institute is happy to welcome Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the US President, for a conversation about our response to the corona virus.

If we have to learn to live with the virus, as is now often said, what will the ‘new normal’ look like? Is there indeed light at the end of the tunnel? What are the lessons learned in this pandemic that will help us all respond better next time? We will discuss these and many more questions concerning the current Covid-19 pandemic with the world’s most prominent and visible specialist on the issue.

He will be interviewed by Damiaan Denys, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Amsterdam, about his views on the pandemic, the ensuing public health crisis and the varying response by governments in the U.S. and Europe.

Join us online to hear the latest news and updates on Covid-19 from the ‘explainer-in-chief’, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

After the 30 minutes interview, Dr. Fauci will leave us. Due to the limited time, questions from the audience are not possible during the interview. Damiaan Denys will subsequently moderate a further discussion with two other guest speakers, one of whom is the eminent virologist Marion Koopmans of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam. We will then also open up the discussion for our viewers.
