Note from Dr. Dirk le Roux:
Due to the State of the Nation speech by President C Ramaphosa declaring a state of emergency in South Africa re the COVID-19 virus, it is evident that overseas traveling will be a risk for at least the next 2 months.
If members decide to cancel due to the state of emergency, I do not think they should be penalized in accordance to President’s speech.
I personally prefer not to travel to the UK for Charing Cross & the ESVS Council meeting.
Do all VASSA EXCO members agree to a communication in this regard?

The Charing Cross Symposium 2020 will be held on 21-24 April 2020 (Tuesday to Friday) at Olympia, London with the theme “Vascular and Endovascular Consensus Update”.
