This is the most informative and accessible course for the state of affairs of COVID19 as of April 2020. I selected an intermediate level because it is designed for medical professionals as well as casual MOOCers. However, they explain the concepts and details simply without losing any of the detail. Unlike some other courses, the instructors do not "dumb down" the material. Don't discount this course just because it is short.

Great clarity of information, very relevant for front line healthcare staff. The information around reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction and the testing for Covid 19 is very lucidly explained in simple way. Information of N95 masks and how to use it is very relevant for the healthcare staff currently working with COVID poistive patients.

The course really helped me to understand the concepts of Covid19 in depth. In fact it increased my knowledge in epidermiology as the course did not just look at Covid 19nas a specific topic it also inform on all other diseases of public health concern. As t is now am confidently well equipped with information to teach other health personnel on their shortfalls on epidermiology.

Very basic information is given, mostly intended to general public. I wish it was updated more regularly, and more elaborated with the recent research findings, as it is CME eligible.
