Overview

This free Teach-Out is for anyone who has been curious about how we identify and measure outbreaks like the COVID-19 epidemic and wants to understand the epidemiology of these infections.

The COVID-19 epidemic has made many people want to understand the science behind pressing questions like: "How many people have been infected?" "How do we measure who is infected?" "How infectious is the virus?" "What can we do?" Epidemiology has the tools to tell us how to collect and analyze the right data to answer these questions.

In addition to a basic understanding of these essential tools, this Teach-Out provides a way for you to learn and connect with one another while continuing to practice the social distancing measures that will help keep us safe. We also hope to provide you with some tangible calls to action that will help you affect positive change for yourself, your community, and our society.

Abubakar is taking this course right now, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I have learned a lot about covid 19 because the support of the facilitators for the event class is so interesting, I can be able to teach others about this pandemic, my best regards to those contribute in organizing and deliver it free to us, as a health worker my major concern is to prevent our people to avoid contact with the deadly deseases.

Thanks.
