Covid-19 History Spread and Mitigation

The story of COVID-19 begins in a live animal and seafood market in Wuhan, China, where scientists believe the virus jumped species from a snake to a human. The virus quickly spread across the globe crippling the world economy and testing public health systems.  Largely unprepared, the U.S. health system did its best to respond to an overwhelming rise in cases and deaths.  Complicating prevention efforts, many individuals refused to wear masks and practice social distancing—a point of view shared by President Trump.    Students will learn how the elderly, disabled, and residents of long-term care are the most vulnerable to severe symptoms and have the highest mortality rates.  Finally, the course looks at treatment options, vaccination development, and mitigation protocols for residential care.
