COVID-19 Q & A

Welcome to Naturally Speaking’s blog series on COVID-19! This collective effort by the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine was prompted by requests that some of our members have been receiving from the wider community: to answer questions about the virus that is currently affecting everyone, but about which we still know so little. The information available can be confusing and contradictory. So with this blog series, we aim to bring you a synthesis of the best available information (compiled and reviewed by members of our Institute), Q & A style.

Posts are available on the following topics:

1 – Transmission and Prevention

2 – Testing and Treatment

3 – The Virus

4 – Severity of Infection

5 – The Exit Strategy
