Effects of coronavirus felt at institutions worldwide and Dutch Contact Lens Congress postponed
Universities around the world have been affected by the spread of the COVID-19 virus, with institutions closed to students and relying on online education. China National Coordinator Qu Xiaomei said the situation in China was improving, but schools were not open as normal and students were taking online classes at home. Universities in Korea and Italy are among those experiencing closures. The Nederlands Contactlens Congres, due to take place on 15-16 March, has been postponed and will be rescheduled for later this year.
