About Course


We have been concerned about the misinformation being shared worldwide and in Nigeria about the COVID-19 epidemic. How did this disease develop? Where did it come from? How does it cause diseases?

The world has been startled and frightened by the rapid spread of this virus throughout the world. Many want to know how does this disease present, what are the symptoms associated with COVID-19? How dangerous is COVID-19? Who is at risk of dying? All these questions will be answered in addition to how is this disease is best treated and how can we slow the spread of the infection?

In addition to the videos multiple choice questions are included to test your understanding and there is an epidemiology peer reviewed exercise designed to teach you how this infection is spread and to show the power of the tracing of cases and isolating those who are infected. The second peer review exercise will encourage you to create a campaign to shift your countries culture to embrace behaviors that can lead to suppression of the epidemic, behaviors that will save lives. After completing this course you will be armed with the knowledge and skills to make a difference and help to bend the curve.
