The organisers of the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists 2020, scheduled for September 5 - 9 in Prague, Czech Republic, are closely monitoring the current situation regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). All measures and regulations recommended or imposed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as by the Czech Ministry of Health are being implemented.
Preparations for WCA 2020 are well underway and are going ahead as planned. That time of the year is sunny and warm in this part of Europe and we anticipate an outstanding congress in one of the world's most beautiful cities. Of course we will constantly monitor the situation and will issue further information as necessary.
Advice for the public can be found here.
Guidance for anaesthesia and perioperative care providers can be found here.
Should you have more specific questions kindly address them to email@example.com and they will be answered as soon as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you to Prague.
