Ready to respond: ECDC fellowship programme fellows supporting Europe’s response to the novel Coronavirus

As fully-fledged professionals in applied epidemiology (EPIET) and public health microbiology (EUPHEM), the fellows of the ECDC Fellowship Programme work all across the European Union and European Economic Area in public health institutes and laboratories. At this stage, some 16 fellows from two current cohorts are involved in the work to prepare and respond to the on-going health threat from the novel Coronavirus detected in China.
