In these stressful times, the College and its faculty have diverted their attention to the most pressing
matter at hand, Covid-19. In light of this, Sharjah TV recently arranged an interview with Prof. Qutayba
Hamid, on which he spoke about the College's initiatives. Multiple teams of specialists have already been
assembled and deployed from the Sharjah Institute of Medical Research to analyze and counteract the
current pandemic. Additionally, the medical labs are able to extend the daily testing capacity of the
country by an additional 400 tests. Finally, given the plethora of available tools and funds, Prof. Qutayba
is hopeful that further serological and genetic testing can begin in the near future.
