Coronavirus and Basic Virology
As many schools reopen this fall, we could all use a review of basic virology. Connor Wander enlists the help of Calvin Yeager, a UNC Virology UNC PhD Candidate. Connor and Calvin break down the basics of the viral life cycle and how we can use this knowledge to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
Coronavirus is everywhere right now. Whether on the streets or the news, it’s nearly impossible to avoid. Most of us are tired of quarantine and can’t wait to get back to our normal lives, but that can’t happen safely unless we know how to protect ourselves and others.
