Explore what COVID-19 is and how we respond to it going forward
The world is paying close attention to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), following its emergence in December 2019 in Wuhan, China.
With over a thousand deaths from the virus already and warnings it could spread to as much as 60% of the world population, governments are scrambling to respond, while citizens are wondering how worried they should be.
On this course, you’ll identify what we know so far about the disease outbreak. You’ll learn what exactly the virus is, how we think it spreads, how we should respond to it in the present, and what its implications are for the future.
This course would be of interest to healthcare professionals looking to learn the latest information on COVID-19, including details on how it spreads, how infectious it is, how people should be screened and quarantined, and when it should be considered a public health emergency.
It would also be valuable for members of the public who are concerned about the virus and want to separate fact from fiction.
