Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Improvement This video is certainly an improvement over Wondrium's previous COVID video, but still contains errors, especially those concerning the outbreak's origin. It was not in a fish market in Wuhan, but rather in a virology lab in that city. Unfortunately, the gain-of-function research done in that lab was partially funded by the United States NIH. It's high time that responsibility for this outbreak is placed where it belongs. A second criticism of this video involves the technical terminology used, which is far beyond the vocabulary of most individuals. Don't have a solution for this problem, which could cause viewers to 'glaze over.'

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Information Delivers a clear explanation of how COVID-19 infects cells. The virology / immunology is is simple but helps the viewed understand the basics of virual infection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent review of Coronaviruses This should be a giveaway for Great Courses to YouTube and other web-cites. Probably needs an upgrade to include latest info and results of control measures. Highly recommend that all people should view this to learn something about what a virus is and how easy it can be transmitted. Great work Great Courses!

What is COVID-19

01: What is COVID-19

In order to understand how something so tiny that you can't even see it with a regular microscope can bring the world to a halt, you have to understand what a virus is. Join a professor of biochemistry and biophysics to look at the novel coronavirus through the lens of science as he uncovers what a virus is, what a virus isn’t, and what it will take to reduce the spread and end the pandemic.
