‘COVID-19 control measures choking rural, slum dwellers’. Professor Frances Griffiths
Sci Dev Net (26.11.2020) – ‘COVID-19 control measures choking rural, slum dwellers’. Professor Frances Griffiths, the study’s co-author and a professor at the UK-based Warwick Medical School, tells SciDev.Net that slum dwellers were already disadvantaged by unreliable water supply, poor provision of toilets and makeshift housing in the slum communities and there is a danger of them being deprived further by COVID-19 control restrictions.
Thank you to some MBChB unsung heroes who have been keeping things running by providing large numbers of training sessions to equip teachers in GP, in the community and at WMS for online working; Sue Davies, Catherine Bennett, Imogen Davis, Cath Fenn, Clare Blackburn and Jan Cooper. The wheels would have fallen off without you!
