Dr. David Griffin currently works as an Infectious Diseases Fellow at the Alfred Hospital, where he is actively involved in the COVID-19 response. David is a medical graduate of the University of Queensland, where he was awarded the Karl Kessler Memorial Prize for Infectious Diseases. After working in Queensland, David returned to Melbourne to complete his physician training, and was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians in Infectious Diseases, in 2020. He also holds a Master of Public Health from the University of Sydney in communicable diseases. While his interests in infectious diseases and healthcare are broad, his current research is centred around COVID-19, HIV and transplant infectious diseases. There is no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most pivotal events we have encountered in recent history, and in this episode David sits down with our team member Ray to discuss the pandemic from a doctor's perspective, as well as the progression and likely future of the virus in Australia.
