Message from the Micronutrient Forum regarding the Coronavirus
February 17, 2020
Dear Global Conference and Global Summit on Food Fortification Community,
In our message on February 12, 2020, the organizers of the Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference and the Second Global Summit on Food Fortification committed to sharing updates with you every Monday with information about COVID-19, the novel coronavirus’ potential impact on the Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference and the Global Summit on Food Fortification, and our planning.
The situation with respect to COVID-19 is changing rapidly in the region, and we have accelerated our efforts with partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Therefore, while we don’t have an update today, we expect to be sending an additional communication later this week. Please watch for it.
Again, we would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation as we monitor the situation in Thailand. We would also like to thank our tireless conference Local Organizing Committee as it keeps abreast of new developments. We continue to think of those who are affected by the epidemic.
