All of us get nearly daily updates on the coronavirus, and sometimes they contradict each other. ATrain Education has taken a long view of SARS-CoV-2 to bring you the best available comprehensive information. This includes the origin of the virus; understanding the chain of infection; an explanation of R Naught (R0, the basic reproduction number); the reason the USA can’t look forward to herd immunity; the status of testing and vaccines; the reasons for public health directives; the history of coronaviruses; and the dire impacts of the virus on minority populations.
