SAOA 2020 Congress postponed to November
The world has been brought to its knees by a single strand of RNA surrounded by four proteins. We have been forced into a new digital age of virtual meetings, webinars and even virtual consultations. Almost all conferences planned for 2020 have been cancelled or hosted on a virtual platform. These platforms are improving all the time but cannot replicate face-to-face meetings and the ability to catch up with old friends at social events. In South Africa, we are still only reaching the peak of the surge and this will continue at least until September. After this we will all need some time to catch up procedures that have been delayed due to the pandemic.
