The ESC and ACNAP leaderships have been closely following the rapid spread of COVID-19 and its impact on healthcare professionals, particularly, nurses and allied professionals who are on the front lines.
Increasingly severe measures are being put in place to limit the spread of the virus as health systems deal with the pandemic. As such, 38% of our congress faculty have already cancelled their participation in EuroHeartCare – and that number will only grow.
In addition, Spain’s authorities have imposed a nationwide lockdown to fight the sharp rise in infections and it is unclear how the situation will evolve over the coming weeks. As a result of these factors and our responsibility to protect the health of our faculty, delegates and staff, the ACNAP board decided that cancelling the congress was the only responsible course of action.
No, the congress is cancelled. However, we are pleased to confirm that EuroHeartCare 2021 will take place in Seville, Spain.
