SARS-CoV-2 was first identified in 7 patients in Wuhan, China. All the patients had a direct connection with a Wholesale Seafood Market that also sold more than 75 types of live animals.  The patients presented with a progressive lower respiratory infection that quickly acquired the name Coronavirus Disease 2019, commonly known now as COVID-19.  On January 30, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a Public Health Emergency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services followed a day later.  In March 2020, the WHO declared pandemic status for COVID-19.  

Since the virus’ arrival in December 2019, the availability of information has mirrored the rise in number of people infected with the virus.  There is no lack of information being distributed and there is a lot of misinformation.  Credible organizations like the WHO, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Oxford University, and the Johns Hopkins University, are all competing with Facebook, Twitter, commercial news media, and political organizations that distribute their own versions of the facts.

This course is designed to offer standardized knowledge from the most credible organizations including: WHO, NIH, CDC, Oxford University, Johns Hopkins, and others.  References, including original research, are included in the course. 

Periodic newsletters and course updates will be distributed to all students as they become available. 

CMEs are accepted as CE equivalents for most nursing licensing and credentialing purposes.  CLICK HERE for more information.

The course is brought to you using a “virtual classroom” that can be accessed 24/7/365 on any device connected to the Internet using any network.  Once enrolled, it will never leave your account and will be updated as needed.  This course is currently under accreditation review at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  We expect to offer retroactive CME upon completion of that process and a Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine CME certificate will available to you by download.
