In this course, students will learn about the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 2019, and its global spread to the present date. This course will be taught with an infectious disease prevention and control focus, but will cross-cut each major discipline within public health. The course will emphasize small group work related to designing targeted interventions based on examples of successful mitigation.
