Virologists from the Virology Department work closely with the WHO. Prof. Marion Koopmans and Dr. Bart Haagmans participate in the WHO virologists group – in which virologists from all over the world are affiliated. The virology department has – if necessary – tests available to determine whether someone has the coronavirus.
