Health Education in Response to Outbreak
By Allison Kozicharow
In quick response to the global coronavirus crisis, WiRED International’s medical writing team has created a health learning module on the infection. The module is based on information and guidance from the world’s most authoritative sources: the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
WiRED’s module offers a general introduction to the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and describes the infection and its close relationship to other coronaviruses, how it is spread, its incubation period and symptoms, treatment and most important — its prevention. WiRED offers hundreds of modules in our Health Learning Center — all free of charge — for copying and download onto computers, flash drives and other portable storage media.
WHO has declared the coronavirus outbreak to be a global health emergency. WiRED will follow events closely as they unfold — including the race to make a vaccine — and continue to offer the most current scientific information on coronavirus.
