This conference focuses on the main advances that have made it possible to understand how SARS-CoV-2 causes the disease and the treatment for COVID-19; but other aspects such as epidemiological ones, decisive for COVID-19 to become a universal pandemic, and lessons that will help us to prevent infectious diseases becoming future pandemics are also discussed.

The risk of similar pathogens (from animal species) infecting the humans in the future is very high. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 75% of emerging infectious diseases are caused by animal-related viruses jumping into the human species; in recent decades there are numerous examples: AIDS, Ebola virus, SARS, H1N1 and now SARS-CoV-2.
