The Nordic Committee of bioethics (NCBIO) will host a series of events on bioethical aspects of the COVID19 pandemic in the Nordic countries. The aim is to identify ethical aspects of the pandemic, to look at policies and debates with a view on differences and similarities between the countries. By doing this as series of events we aim to follow the development from the outbreak of the pandemic and over time.
