A Discussion on the Coronavirus (SARS-COV-2)

Brett Averso, CTO, and I linked up to discuss the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Brett covered what exactly the coronavirus is, the threat it currently presents (attention given to relative threat with respect to the original SARS virus [SARS-CoV] and MERS [MERS-CoV]), how we can best protect ourselves and our loved ones against infection, and what EVQLV is doing to address the outbreak. Watch our entire discussion below.

The discussion regarding the incubation period is supported by research performed by a Johns Hopkins lead study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Our discussion regarding the Case-Fatality Rate (CFR) was provided by the Chinese CDC and published by Jama Network on February 24th. We’ve constructed relevant pie charts based upon their data below.

n = 44672. Data above independent of demographics

For additional tips on how to keep you and your loved ones safe, view the CDC guidelines.

For more information on EVQLV’s work on combatting coronavirus, view Immunoprecise’s press release.

As Brett suggested, we recommend investigating the latest research without the news hype on the coronavirus with Google Scholar. Two examples below.

1. Sars-CoV-2

2. COVID-19
