Message from the Dean, 28 April 2020

In this week's video message I cover:

  • The continuing downward trend of new cases in Australia, as seen in the Australian Government's COVID-19 at a glance infographic
  • Why I decided to download the new COVIDSafe app and urge you to consider doing so too
  • Associate Professor Victoria Palmer from our Department of General Practice has worked collaboratively with our Centre for the Digital Transformation of Health, along with healthcare partners, on CovidCare
    • This is an app that will assist patients to self-monitor symptoms, and importantly, study their mental health impacts and emotional needs while in self-isolation
  • The Melbourne Dental Clinic continues to support the health and wellbeing of the community by providing urgent and emergency care
    • Thank you to the staff who have introduced strategies to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic
  • A Science article about the problems with using over 300 different antibody tests
  • PhD students Hanna Savage and Yara Toenders' clever approach to tea-making
