CoronaVirus - What's The Truth? - Behind The Headlines - Part 1

Dr Gill Clinical Skills
The CoronaVirus has gripped the headlines, and if you listen to the daily news, you'd feel the world was coming to an end. As a scientist and a GP, I've been a little irritated at what I can only describe as fear-mongering. Yes, the Wuhan Virus is causing deaths and is an international medical problem, but what is the SCIENCE? What about the facts behind the virus? I've teamed up with Dr Ravi Gowda an Infectious Disease Consultant to get the true information behind the virus outbreak. What it means for you and I, and most importantly puts things into context. This is the introduction to two longer videos, all designed to help you understand what is going on! #Coronavirus #goodscience #health BruceBlaus - flu virus Mosquito - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Muhammad_Mahdi_Karim TB - cdc TB.
