Join us for a webinar on June 17 for a discussion of the webinar
The Coronaviruses (CoV) are positive sense RNA viruses possessing spike-like projections on the surface creating a crown-like appearance upon magnification with electron microscopy. They are a large family of viruses causing a wide range of illness from the common cold to more severe diseases, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).
The novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a man-made chimera that was engineered in 2015 in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This engineered virus claimed its first victim in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, in Wuhan China in December 2019. On December 31st 2019, China notified the outbreak to the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020, declared COVID-19 a pandemic, pointing to the over 118,000 cases of the coronavirus illness in over 110 countries and territories around the world and the sustained risk of further global spread.
We consider this epidemic a threat to the entire human life due to the lack of a sufficient preventive and treatment strategy to protect against it until now.
Why Should You Attend
There is a lot of information circulating online about COVID-19 and there is a lot of confusion around what will happen to individuals, what this new enemy is that has suddenly appeared in our midst, interrupted/threatened our lives and what to do to stay safe.
The goal of this webinar it to provide clear information to demystify COVID-19 and provide a platform to answer questions. The content is scientific in nature but simplified for people so that people without a strong scientific background can understand the content.
The outline of this 60 minute Webinar includes:
• Emergence of COVID-19
• Comparison with other strains of Coronoviruses
• Biology and life-cycle
• Epidemiology and pathogenesis
• Incubation period
• Clinical features
• Warning signs
• Differential diagnosis
• Risk factors
• Therapeutic recommendations
Following the completion of this webinar you will gain a basic to moderate knowledge of Corona viruses in general and COVID-19, its biology, transmission, epidemiology, clinical features, warning signs, diagnosis, risk factors, and prevention of COVID-19. Countermeasures will be discussed at a high level and will be broken down into potential treatments that block the viral lifecycle (monoclonal antibodies, Camostat mesylate, chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir-ritonavir, remdesivir); potential anti-inflammatories (corticosteroids and baricitinib); immune boosters; and potential vaccines.
