Students will explore how viruses infect people, how they spread between different populations, and what this means for a globally connected world, especially relevant in a COVID-19 pandemic world.

Online Module

Students will discover how a virus infects a cell and how we measure the impact of a viral infection on a global scale through engagement with the online content on the portal. The narrative is set in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic through four different chapters.

Each chapter contains written content with supporting images, simulations, videos, and questions for students to work through. The content explores the misconceptions associated with infectious diseases and guides students towards a holistic understanding about the nature of pathogenic conditions, treatments, and associated statistics.
