I take this chance to thank the UNESCO's offices in Cairo, Beirut and Rabat for coordinating this variety of messages.

In a related matter, I would like to share with you The King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) Guidelines for Research in Epidemics/Pandemics and Emergencies-, which I have

contributed to.

Best regards,
