Cloud Talk: Working Together To Defeat Coronavirus
The first volume of Cloud Talk tackled China’s fight against Covid-19, the challenges ahead and the tools at our disposal to face the pandemic.
Gen.T honouree Long Tianwei, founder of med-tech company Manle Technology, discussed the road ahead to a vaccine. Dr Zhang Ruiyao, who heads up a Cambridge University lab that focuses on the interplay between viruses and the human immune system, offered insight on Covid-19’s latest global developments.
During the two-hour session in the Gen.T WeChat group, around 30 honourees engaged in the discussion, asking questions and drawing up a plan to work together to fight Covid-19 in their respective industries.
One of our key takeaways was to pay attention to the first week of May, as the results of tests on the potentially game-changing coronavirus treatment Remdesivir will be revealed at that time.
