Coronavirus crisis: lab research activity finally resumed

On March 20, our lab was closed, like all others in our university. Since then, we regularly had lab meetings and journal clubs via Teams or Zoom, online tools we never used before. Three of us (Catherine, Simon and Bruno) joined the platform that was rapidly implemented in our institute (thanks to efforts of our colleagues C. Gueydan and G. De Muylder) to carry out coronavirus qRT-PCR tests for hospitals and nursing houses around Charleroi.

From May 6th, the lab is open again, with application of strict distance and hygiene rules. Thanks very much to Catherine who had in charge to organize this and who did an incredible job to collect masks for everyone, define safety rules and equip each room. Most of us could thus take over experiments which is good news. Hopefully normal life will be back soon.
