Meeting with Lasse Skafte Vestergaard from Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark

On 9th December our PhD student Veronika Pacutova met with Lasse Skafte Vestergaard, who is Senior Medical Officer at the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Prevention, Staten Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark. He is also project coordinator of EuroMOMO, which provides weekly mortality activity, aiming to detect and measure excess deaths related to seasonal influenza, pandemics and other public health threats among 29 European countries. The project is also supported by the ECDC and WHO. Unfortunately, Slovakia is still not cooperating so we hope it will change in the future as EuroMOMO will gladly welcome us.
