1. What does the Covid-19 outbreak in India reveal about their role in professional associations?

My work was in relation to US medical associations and I really am not qualified to address this question.

2. You mentioned that health professionals should be better prepared to contribute to achieving global health security. What is your opinion about that in Indian doctors who have not yet graduated from universities are working directly to save lives during pandemic?

In general, I believe health professions students should only be used when absolutely required and then only in positions appropriate to their skill levels and under direct supervision.

3. What do you think of the specific anti-epidemic measures that Japan may take for the Tokyo Olympic Games?

I believe appropriate vaccination requirements would obviate most restrictions and allow the game4s to go on as in the past.

4. What do you think is the impact of the pandemic in India on the upcoming Tokyo Olympics?

Again, appropriate vaccination requirements should dictate this.

注(学者回复):Dear Joyce Xu - my answers are brief because the questions call for opinion whic I am always reluctant to expand upon.
