We hope you and your families and colleagues are doing well during these difficult days. We want to use this opportunity to express our gratitude for the tireless commitment and efforts of pathologists around Europe and worldwide for patient care. The COVID-19 outbreak has been described as “the biggest public health emergency in a generation”. Our core values of commitment, solidarity and responsibility towards our members across the globe have never been stronger as we face these challenging times.
In due consideration of the Coronavirus situation evolving rapidly and dramatically across the globe, ESP is closely monitoring the announcements and legal frameworks where events are to be held, to make sure that any decision will abide by such rules, for the safety of all involved. The impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on the educational and scientific activities, routine practice and the daily life is evidently challenging and unprecedent. We continue to confidently plan for our educational and scientific activities though treating the health and safety of our members and delegates as our number one priority. We will follow the official health and the recommendation of local governmental bodies.
