Coronavirus Webinar with Paramedic Chiefs of Canada

PCC Webcast: 2019-nCoV “Coronavirus” – Emerging Infectious Disease

FirstWatch helped the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada (PCC) host an informational webinar on the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus, Monday, February 3rd at 9 am Pacific/12 noon Eastern. The PCC began holding similar informational discussions during the SARS outbreak and worked with FirstWatch during the subsequent H1N1 and Ebola outbreaks. This PCC webinar was open to anyone, but we especially wanted to invite FirstWatch customers to get the most recent information on the Coronavirus and FirstWatch trigger surveillance. During this webinar participants received an update on the Coronavirus, current public safety-related information, and learned from a discussion with a team from Snohomish County, WA where the first North American patient was confirmed.
