WebGyan- Dr. C. S. Pramesh: Has COVID-19 research set back evidence-based medicine?

In this COVIDGyan session, Dr. C. S. Pramesh, the Director of the Tata Memorial Hospital, will address the topic: Has COVID-19 research set back evidence-based medicine?
The COVID-19 pandemic has spread to all countries of the world. With over 11 million people infected worldwide and over half a million deaths, it is a public health emergency. Justifiably, researchers globally have scrambled together a large volume of research addressed at various aspects of the disease including it's treatment. Desperate situations call for desperate solutions; however, compromising standards of therapeutic research could result in serious harm. In this talk, Dr Pramesh will describe how the tenets of evidence-based medicine have been frequently violated, and warns against accepting diminished standards of biomedical research into the pandemic.
In case of any issues, please join the live stream on the COVIDGyan Youtube channel.
