Kirby Institute Seminar Series presents
A novel coronavirus, COVID-19, emerged in early December 2019 in Wuhan, China, and was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by WHO on 30 January 2020 when there were 7,711 cases globally, mostly in China. It has now surpassed SARS in number of cases and deaths, and has some similarities to both SARS and MERS CoV. This talk will cover the evidence of origins, clinical features, epidemiology and public health response to COVID-19, and forecasts of the epidemic trajectory.
