Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is great! It is been a while from COVID-19 paranoia days and unfortunate times. It is good to view this summary on medical and academic standpoint about now-famous virus took so many lives for 2 straight years. Hopefully, we'd see a good Outbreak science course here in Wondrium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid summary of what was known in 2020 It would be a great addition to tie this into an extension of the "anatomy and physiology" and the "biochem and molecular biology" courses. There are a lot of moving parts to examine, for example, the range of bodily responses and outcomes, how comorbidities work. Distill the body down to the relevant systems, especially vital ones, with some meters like blood pressure and oxygen saturation, what's on a crash cart and whatever else is relevant for a thought experiment. Then follow the course of infection from mild to intubation, and the odd outcomes like clotting, myocarditis, covid toes, and long covid syndromes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Improvement This video is certainly an improvement over Wondrium's previous COVID video, but still contains errors, especially those concerning the outbreak's origin. It was not in a fish market in Wuhan, but rather in a virology lab in that city. Unfortunately, the gain-of-function research done in that lab was partially funded by the United States NIH. It's high time that responsibility for this outbreak is placed where it belongs. A second criticism of this video involves the technical terminology used, which is far beyond the vocabulary of most individuals. Don't have a solution for this problem, which could cause viewers to 'glaze over.'

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Information Delivers a clear explanation of how COVID-19 infects cells. The virology / immunology is is simple but helps the viewed understand the basics of virual infection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent review of Coronaviruses This should be a giveaway for Great Courses to YouTube and other web-cites. Probably needs an upgrade to include latest info and results of control measures. Highly recommend that all people should view this to learn something about what a virus is and how easy it can be transmitted. Great work Great Courses!

Overview

Examine why antibiotics are used for bacterial infections and why they aren't used for viruses, and what it will take to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, as you join a professor of biochemistry and biophysics to take a scientific look at what a virus is.
What is COVID-19

01: What is COVID-19

In order to understand how something so tiny that you can't even see it with a regular microscope can bring the world to a halt, you have to understand what a virus is. Join a professor of biochemistry and biophysics to look at the novel coronavirus through the lens of science as he uncovers what a virus is, what a virus isn’t, and what it will take to reduce the spread and end the pandemic.
