International research collaborations: how can we shift the power towards Africa?

By Salome Maswime, Kevin Marsg and Rifat Atun

COVID-19 may have disrupted many higher education institutions and universities across the world, but it has also sparked conversations around a range of topics. Academics from the University of Cape Town have been discussing, in part, the  impact of COVID on international research collaborations given ’the long history of unequal partnerships and research collaborations between developed countries and African Researchers’ says Salome Masxime.

UK scientists begin study of how long Covid can survive in the air 

A recent article in The Guardian has highlighted recent developments in the study of Coronavirus COVID-19. Scientists (two pictured on the left: Dr. Allen Haddrell and Henry Oswin) in the Bristol Aerosol Centre (BARC) at the University of Bristol are leading new research whereby the virus will be suspended in an aerosol droplet under a range of conditions. This is due to growing concerns of the virus lingering in the air in smaller droplets. Professor Jonathan Reid, at the University of Bristol, who is heading this research, has said: “We know that when bacteria or viruses become airborne in respiratory droplets they very quickly dry down and can lose viability, so that’s an important step to understand when assessing the role of airborne transmission in Covid-19.”
