Tampa, FL, US – In an attempt to provide further insights into the Coronavirus  as the disease prevalence continues to escalate within the US, USF Health Professor, researcher, and Senior Associate Dean Dr. Christian Brechot has inaugurated a blog on USF Health’s web site devoted to COVID-19.  Recent topics on the blog include the role of young adults in the pandemic’s spread, counter to their reputation as being, “invulnerable;” the all out scientific push to find effective drugs and a preventative vaccine, and the importance of getting the correct “denominator” in the calculation of mortality rates.

In addition to his contributions to this blog, Dr. Brechot serves as a USF Associate Vice President for International Partnerships and Innovation.   In addition, he has served as president of the Global Virus Network since 2017 and is past president of the world-renowned Pasteur Institute.
