COVID-19: get the latest research

Coronaviruses are important human and animal pathogens. At the end of 2019, a novel coronavirus was identified as the cause of a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in the Hubei Province of China. It rapidly spread, resulting in an epidemic throughout China, with sporadic cases reported globally. In February 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the disease COVID-19, which stands for coronavirus disease 2019. Previously, this virus was referred to as 2019-nCoV.

The COVID-19 update presented to interns on 11 March 2020 is now available via the Library website. Presenters included: Dr Tony Merritt (Public Health Physician, Population Health), Dr Catherine Berry (Staff Specialist, Immunology and Infectious Diseases Unit, JHH), and Assoc Prof Chris Grainge (Staff Specialist, Respiratory and General Medicine, JHH)
