The WMA Executive Committee (ExCo) decided at its meeting of 22 July, not to hold the General Assembly as a traditional in-person meeting, due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation. The ExCo decided to convert the GA, Council and Committee Sessions into virtual meetings.The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic does not allow us to continue planning for a hybrid (in-person/online) WMA Scientific Session on 23 October 2020 in Cordoba. Jointly with our Spanish colleagues the WMA Executive Committee has decided to postpone the Scientific Session to next year. The new date will be informed later.The date of GA and the Council Sessions is moved to the following week starting 26 October. Further details are available in the event page.
