Submit your abstracts on the 2019 n-CoV outbreak!

As we’re confronted daily with news stories about the 2019 n-CoV outbreak, the seventh coronavirus known to infect humans, the 6th World One Health Congress could not come at a more significant time. With more cases being reported every day the race is on to contain the outbreak and scientists are at the heart of the effort.

The 6th World One Health Congress offers a unique and valuable opportunity to bring together scientific experts of all the relevant disciplines, to share and discuss their findings. The Congress organizers have therefore added a separate session on the 2019 n-CoV to the programme.
