AKU is playing a crucial role in the fight against the pandemic. We are providing COVID testing and screening for the infected while continuing to care for non-COVID-19 patients; conducting research to better understand the virus and its spread; developing innovative devices and diagnostics; advising governments at the highest levels; educating the public; sharing our knowledge with other hospitals and health care workers; and rapidly transitioning to online instruction so our students can keep learning safely.
Efforts are underway around the world to develop a safe and effective vaccine to protect people against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. AKU is looking for potential volunteers who are willing to take part in a clinical trial of the CanSino COVID-19 vaccine. If you are interested in participating, please fill this short online form.
