The four experts who took part in the round table «How do we deal with the next COVID? Research, dissemination and patronage, the role of clinical professionals and citizens», Moderated by the journalist of Catalunya Ràdio Marina Romero, agreed that the guard cannot be lowered, because the COVID-19 is still very much present.
One of the other points addressed during the debate was the successes and failures in pandemic management, although, as the experts pointed out, "you can't talk about mistakes, especially during the first wave, because we didn't know what we were facing." However, they all stressed the fundamental role played by nurses during pandemic management.
The speakers also highlighted lthe importance of research to develop effective vaccines against the disease and in such a fast period of time.
