Science Matters: Let's talk about COVID-19

As part of our COVID-19 response, we have developed an informative online course: ‘Science Matters: Let’s Talk about COVID-19' which covers how the spread of the epidemic is modelled, how transmissibility of infections is estimated, what the challenges are in estimating the case fatality ratio, and the importance of community involvement in responding to the epidemic. This interactive course is designed for all learners.
