Course Introduction

Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause respiratory illnesses. They get their name from the crown-like spikes on the surface of the virus particles.

In late 2019, a new strain of coronavirus, Covid-19, was discovered in Wuhan City, China. Most people affected by Covid-19 experience mild to moderate symptoms but the virus can lead to severe illness and even death. Typically, symptoms are worse in people with existing health problems such as diabetes, lung disease and weak immune systems. Some people may experience longer term health problems after contracting Covid-19.

Our Coronavirus course is designed to help people understand how the virus spreads and how they can reduce the risk of transmission to keep themselves and others safe and healthy.

This Coronavirus Online Training course takes on average 15 minutes to complete.
