All the posts posted in this blog are my own and they do not necessarily represent the opinions, views and policies of any institutions I am/was associated with (e.g. educational, professional). Moreover, I am not an epidemiology expert. I am an amateur who tries to learn epidemiology in all possible ways. And I believe writing and sharing this blog will surely increase my knowledge and it might help others.
