April 20 – 24: Epidemiology of Nipah Virus

Howdy Biotech’ers!

This week I have some kickass activities that will hopefully answer many questions you have about emerging infectious diseases and the current SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 pandemic. This week we will learn about Nipah virus and how we can apply what we learned from this disease to COVID-19. Next week we will learn about the ‘spillover’ of zoonotic diseases in a fantastic film! Stay tuned!

  1. Complete the Epidemiology of Nipah VirusĀ activity here.
  2. Also, check out this video explaining how human activities create pandemics and what changes we can make to prevent them in the future.

As always, I am available through email or zoom (email for code) for questions.

Stay healthy! Keep exercising and washing your hands!
