Wafaa El-Sadr, MD, MPH, MPA, ICAP’s global director, presented on “COVID-19: Where Are We and Where Are We Going?” during a May 5 webinar hosted by the TRAIN Learning Network:
In this month’s Log-in2Learn Dr. Wafaa M. El-Sadr presents an overview of the epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Current statistics (as at the day of the webinar) show that racial/ethnic background, age and the presence of comorbidities lead to severity of outcomes. Participants are informed about known modes of transmission (droplets and contact) and the development process of future vaccines is discussed. Participants will understand the impacts of COVID-19 on the health system including a decrease in health services. As knowledge of COVID-19 continues to evolve, easing of mitigation measures needs to be done carefully to sustain progress that has been made.
