Learning More About Coronavirus – BLIA Health Seminar on Coronavirus Tests

On Dec 12, BLIA Toronto Da Tzu Subchapter 1 organized an online health seminar. The topic was “Learning More About Coronavirus - On the Various Testing Methods.” The speaker was Dr Hui Li, a scientific consultant providing medical diagnostic and nutraceutical consultation to physicians and patients, and a lecturer of the Medical School of the University of Toronto. The seminar had two segments: scientific presentation and Q&A.

 

Dr Li utilized PowerPoint slides and easy to understand language to explain facts regarding the virus and different testing methods such as Covid-19 Nucleic Acid PCR Test, Rapid Antigen Test, and IgM/IgG Serologic Test. She also listed organizations where these tests might be available for travel purposes.

 

In her opening comments, Venerable Miao Mu, the Director of Fo Guang Shan Temple of Toronto, explained that under this extraordinary time, it is timely that a seminar such as this was conducted with the purpose of providing members of her congregation with relevant information so that they can better understand the virus and the testing methods for increasing awareness.

 

At the end of the seminar, the Da Tzu subchapter 1’s advising Venerable, Venerable Miao Tsun expressed her gratitude to Dr Li for her efforts to make her presentation easy to understand through diagrams and pictures. She also kindly reminded everyone to build up their immunity and to exercise caution in whatever they do.
