Lecture Series: 'A Tale of Two Cities'

5:30 p.m. Thursday, November 11

"A Tale of Two Cities: The impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations in Toronto, Canada, and London, England" will be presented by Iffath Syed. 

Canada had previously experienced a coronavirus outbreak known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) in 2003. It was a significant event that also impacted Toronto’s economy, and tragically included the loss of frontline healthcare workers. Nearly two decades later, major cities around the world experienced the crippling effects of the novel coronavirus pandemic. This presentation explores how COVID-19 affected some of the most vulnerable communities in Toronto and London.
