In the past months Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) has been hosting a series of scientific lectures on COVID-19. This time not the current pandemic, but a silent pandemic, the antimicrobial resistance, was put in the centre of attention. If you missed it, you can find access to the full webinar recording and the presentation slides here.
