Course to Offer Latest Insights on COVID-19, SARS, & MERS
RN.Org, the lead provider in State Board approved Continuing Education and Training has released a CoronaVirus free training course, including COVID-19, SARS & MERS. The course provides the most current information about the virus family, including symptoms, complications, transmission precautions, diagnosis, and treatment.
On December 31, 2019, Chinese authorities notified the World Health Organization that several cases of pneumonia from an unknown virus had occurred in Wuhan (first cases in early December) and that several of the infected had been employed at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market (a wet market), which was closed down on January 1 although the animal implicated is not yet certain. By January 7, a new coronavirus, then dubbed the 2019 novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or Wuhan Coronavirus was identified.
The virus has since been designated a pandemic, with over 200,000 cases and 8,500 deaths identified globally.
RN.org is contributing to the fight against the spread of the disease through the free release of the course.
