It promises to be a fascinating presentation.
You will all be aware of concerns over Coronavirus. The UK government’s current advice on COVID-19 does not suggest curtailing events such as ours and we and the Embassy are very happy to go ahead. We should, though, like to draw your attention to the government’s guidance : https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public . This is obviously particularly important for anyone who has recently returned from affected areas (including e.g. Singapore and Malaysia) and who feels unwell; but it also contains general advice on the importance of hand-washing and other routine hygiene measures. There is also more information about COVID-19 on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
We hope as many members as possible will be able to join us next week.
