//Novel respiratory viruses in the context of mass gathering events: A systematic review to inform event planning from a health perspective

Dr Jamie Ranse was invited to speak at the Qatar Health 2021 conference on the topic of mass gathering events. This presentation focused on a review of the literature regarding novel respiratory viruses in the context of mass gathering events. This presentation synthesised the literature relating to SARS-CoV-1, H1N1pdm09, and SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in the context of mass gathering events.  Previously published infection prevention and control strategies were presented against a framework of pre, during, and after mass gathering event considerations. These infection preventions and control strategies o have implications for both event organisers and health officials when recommencing events in the context of COVID-19.
