(Recorded 4/9/20)  How did coronaviruses make the leap from animal to human? How is COVID-19 transmitted? What legal and policy interventions are in place to ‘flatten the curve’? With so much information scattered over the internet, where can a repository of reliable data and information on COVID-19— such as transcribed case information that has emerged since the outbreak— be found? Faculty experts in the fields of biology, medicine, law, and informatics from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health and School of Medicine explore COVID-19 from their unique perspectives.
