COVID-19 is a highly infectious coronavirus that jumped from an animal host to humans in late 2019 and subsequently became a pandemic. How did coronaviruses make the leap from animal to human? How is COVID-19 transmitted? What legal and policy interventions are in place to ‘flatten the curve’? With so much information scattered over the internet, where can a repository of reliable data and information on COVID-19—such as transcribed case information that has emerged since the outbreak—be found? Join faculty experts in the fields of biology, medicine, law, and informatics from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health and School of Medicine to explore COVID-19 from their unique perspectives. These experts will be available for an extended period of time at the conclusion of their presentations to answer your questions.
