Learn about the virus that causes COVID-19


With so many sources of information such as news, social media, friends, and family all providing input about this pandemic can be overwhelming! This lecture will help to explain and consolidate all the information about this virus. We will learn about what this virus is, how it is transmitted, and why some people do not show symptoms but can still spread the virus. We will also learn about methods to effectively inactivate the virus! 

You will also gain an understanding of the areas of the body that the virus infects and the long term effects and complications that can occur after COVID-19. Last, epidemiology of this virus will be provided which will assist in the understanding of why it is so important for the Latinx community to be informed about this virus! We are Latinxand proud and informed!
