Swiss doctor stepping down to take position at Oxford University

“It’s a surprising experience for somebody like me. I’m really not accustomed to that,” he said.

The Swiss physician-epidemiologist, who steps down as scientific director of Ontario’s COVID-19 Science Advisory Table as of Monday, became an unlikely pandemic celebrity and one of the province’s most familiar science voices.
