    A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with the video. Especially “Our World in Data”, the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems – and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.

    In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.

    What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

  • What is CORONAVIRUS? AND How to PROTECT YOURSELF?

    2:00

    The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Expert Body on Coronavirus has released guidance for General Public and healthcare professionals on the symptoms of the virus.

    What Signs and Symptoms should you look out for
    A person could be at risk if they have any or all of the Following:
    Fever and symptoms of lower respiratory illness, such as coughing or difficulty breathing, after travelling to Wuhan or having close contact with someone who was ill and is now under investigation for the virus in the past two weeks.
    Fever or symptoms of lower respiratory illness after having close contact in the past two weeks with someone who's been confirmed to have the virus.
    The CDC defined close contact as being within about 6 feet (1.8 m) or within the room or care area of a person with the coronavirus for a prolonged period without appropriate protective clothing, or having direct contact with infectious secretions of a person with the virus without protective clothing.

    Which People should be Extra Careful:
    Coronaviruses are particularly dangerous for people who have weaker immune systems, like young children and older adults

    How to protect yourself
    To protect yourself from the virus:
    Try to avoid contact with people who display symptoms similar to those of pneumonia or the common cold, like coughing or a runny nose.
    Don't touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
    Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
    Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when possible.
    Avoid animals and animal markets.
    The only current treatment for Coronavirus being offered is Supportive in Nature. If you notice any of these signs and Symptoms please contact your nearest Professional Healthcare setup. Share this video to help spread this information to those you love.

  • COVID-19 | Coronavirus: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnostics

    50:39

    Ninja Nerds,

    What is Corona virus? What is COVID-19? Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by SARS-COV2 is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.
    Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. It is believed that COVID-19 was transmitted from pangolin to humans (current theory).
    Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death (WHO, 2020).
    Ninja Nerd Lectures has compiled the most up to date and recent data on COVID-19 as of March 15, 2020. Please follow along with this lecture to understand the origin and zoonosis of COVID-19, the routes of transmission, epidemiology (current as of 3/15/2020), pathophysiology, and diagnostic tests used to identify COVID-19.
    As new information and research is published we will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 and ensure all of our viewers are kept up to date on the most recent data.

  • Coronavirus - Explained for Children

    1:58

    The COVID-19 situation currently ongoing can be a challenging topic to understand for children.

    Instructions about staying specific distances away from family and friends, washing your hands the right way and coughing into a tissue or your sleeve.

    It’s a lot to take in.

    We’ve developed a short amination for young children to help them better understand COVID-19.

    It covers what coronavirus is, what can happen if you get it, how you can help and why your school is closing.

  • Recognizing Day to Day Signs and Symptoms of Coronavirus

    3:51

    DAY TO DAY SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
    Before proceeding, please note that this general overview is compiled for initial self-assessment only and may vary for each individual. If you're not feeling well, you should immediately consult a medical practitioner to have an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of COVID-19.
    The typical daily symptoms are concluded from the study of 138 patients at Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University and another study involving 135 patients from Jinyintan Hospital and 56 patients from Wuhan Pulmonary Hospital.
    These symptoms are broken down into:
    DAY 1 TO DAY 2
    The beginning symptoms are similar to the common cold with a mild sore throat and neither having a fever nor feeling tired. Patients can still consume food and drink as usual.
    DAY 3
    The patient's throats start to feel a bit painful. Body temperature reads at around 36.5° celsius. Although it's uncommon, other symptoms like mild nausea, vomiting or mild diarrhea are possible to set in.
    DAY 4
    Throat pain becomes more serious. Other symptoms like feeling weak and joint pain start to manifest. The patient may show a temperature reading between 36.5° to 37° celsius.
    DAY 5 TO 6
    Mild fever starts. The patients show a temperature reading above 37.2° celsius. The second most common symptom, dry cough, also appears. Dyspnea or breathing difficulty may occur occasionally. Most patients in this stage are easily feeling tired. Other symptoms remain about the same. These four symptoms are among the top five key indications of COVID-19 according to the final report of the initial outbreak conducted by the joint mission of China and WHO.
    DAY 7
    The patients that haven't started recovering by day 7 get more serious coughs and breathing difficulty. Fever can get higher up to 38° celsius. Patients may develop further headache and body pain or worsening diarrhea if there’s any. Many patients are admitted to the hospital at this stage.
    DAY 8 TO 9
    On the 8th day, the symptoms are likely to be worsened for the patient who has coexisting medical conditions. Severe shortness of breath becomes more frequent. Temperature reading goes well above 38°. In one of the studies, day 9 is the average time when Sepsis starts to affect 40% of the patients.
    DAY 10 TO 11
    Doctors are ordering imaging tests like chest x-ray to capture the severity of respiratory distress in patients. Patients are having loss of appetite and may be facing abdominal pain. The condition also needs immediate treatment in ICU.
    DAY 12 TO 14
    For the survivors, the symptoms can be well-managed at this point. Fever tends to get better and breathing difficulties may start to cease on day 13. But Some patients may still be affected by mild cough even after hospital discharge.
    DAY 15 TO 16
    Day 15 is the opposite condition for the rest of the minority patients . The fragile group must prepare for the possibility of acute cardiac injury or kidney injury.
    DAY 17 TO 19
    COVID-19 fatality cases happen at around day 18. Before the time, vulnerable patients may develop a secondary infection caused by a new pathogen in the lower respiratory tract. The severe condition may then lead to a blood coagulation and ischemia.
    DAY 20 TO 22
    The surviving patients are recovered completely from the disease and are discharged from the hospital.

    Coronavirus Explained: Lucy Hockings finds out what Covid-19 is, how it spreads and answers your questions about what action you should take at home, work and when travelling, in a BBC News Special.


    Coronavirus is a respiratory disease which seems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough. After a week, it leads to shortness of breath and some patients require hospital treatment.

    These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. They are similar to those for much more common viruses, such as colds and flu.

    #CoronavirusExplained #BBCCoronavirusExplained

    In more severe cases, coronavirus can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, multiple organ failure and even death.

    Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease), are more likely to become severely ill.

    The incubation period - between infection and showing any symptoms - lasts up to 14 days, the World Health Organization (WHO) says. But some researchers say it may be up to 24 days.

    The 2019 novel coronavirus is a WHO global health emergency. Since it began using the designation in 2005, the World Health Organization has declared global health emergencies only 5 times before. The first case of the 2019 novel coronavirus was reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan on New Year’s Eve. Now, over 30,000 people in at least 26 countries have contracted it. The vast majority of confirmed cases are in Mainland China, where the numbers continue to skyrocket, and where more than 600 people have died as a result. Border closings, suspended flights, a city-wide evacuation and quarantine make for scary stuff. So what is it we’re really talking about when we talk about the coronavirus? And what can we do to protect ourselves?

    Fever and symptoms of lower respiratory illness, such as coughing or difficulty breathing, after travelling to Wuhan or having close contact with someone who was ill and is now under investigation for the virus in the past two weeks.
    Fever or symptoms of lower respiratory illness after having close contact in the past two weeks with someone who's been confirmed to have the virus.
    The CDC defined close contact as being within about 6 feet (1.8 m) or within the room or care area of a person with the coronavirus for a prolonged period without appropriate protective clothing, or having direct contact with infectious secretions of a person with the virus without protective clothing.

    Which People should be Extra Careful:
    Coronaviruses are particularly dangerous for people who have weaker immune systems, like young children and older adults


    How to protect yourself
    To protect yourself from the virus:
    Try to avoid contact with people who display symptoms similar to those of pneumonia or the common cold, like coughing or a runny nose.
    Don't touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
    Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
    Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when possible.
    Avoid animals and animal markets.

  • How vaccines work against COVID-19: Science, Simplified

    2:16

    After we have been exposed to an infection, our immune system remembers the threat, in particular by producing antibodies. These are proteins that circulate in the blood and throughout the body; they quickly recognize and disable the invader upon contact, thereby preventing or minimizing illness. This is why we usually do not get sick with the same bug twice; we are immune. Vaccines mimic this process, encouraging the immune system to make antibodies without us having to go through the illness.

    Some of the leading SARS-CoV-2 vaccine candidates are “mRNA vaccines,” based on incorporating the genetic blueprint for the key spike protein on the virus surface into a formula that when injected into humans instructs our own cells to make the spike protein. In turn, the body then makes antibodies against the spike protein and they protect us against viral infection.
    This strategy is faster than more traditional approaches, which often involve generating weakened or inactivated forms of a live virus or making large amounts of the spike protein to determine whether they can prompt an antibody response.

    Once a potential vaccine is discovered, a number of checkpoints exist before it can be administered to people. First are preclinical tests, which involve experiments in a laboratory and with animals. Scientists must ensure the vaccine candidate is not only effective, but also safe. For example, an antibody response to an imperfect vaccine could, under extremely rare circumstances, end up increasing the danger of becoming infected.
    When the potential vaccine achieves the necessary preclinical results, clinical trials can begin in a small group of people. As the vaccine candidate advances, it is tested on increasing numbers of people, with scientists and doctors closely monitoring safety, efficacy and dosing. Upon successful completion of clinical trials, the vaccine candidate must be reviewed and approved by regulatory agencies such as the FDA before large-scale manufacturing and distribution gets underway and the licensed vaccine is administered widely.

  • Coronavirus Explained: What does pandemic declaration mean for the world?

    6:44

    The World Health Organization has said that the covid-19 novel coronavirus outbreak is a pandemic. (Subscribe:

    In the last two weeks new cases have been reported in Iran, Brazil, Greece, Israel, Nigeria, New Zealand - and the list goes on.

    There are more new cases being reported daily from outside China than inside.

    But what does the term pandemic even mean? And does the WHO calling it one actually change anything?

    There are two kinds of tests for viruses like COVID-19. One tests for the presence of the virus in the sample, and the other for antibodies to the virus. Both are important for understanding who is infected and might transmit the virus to others, who have had the virus and might now be immune, and even who might potentially help others with treatment.

  • Coronavirus Anatomy Explained: Science, Simplified

    2:02

    An animated look at the inner workings of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Illustrated by a Scripps Research scientist, this installment of Science, Simplified gives an overview of the key elements of SARS-CoV-2. From spike proteins to viral RNA, learn what structures make up the novel coronavirus, and what roles they play.

    Science, Simplified is a new series from Scripps Research highlighting key scientific concepts in short, easy-to-understand videos.

    Video script: What are the parts of a coronavirus?

    Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some of which infect humans. The coronavirus at the root of COVID-19 is the newest known member of this family. And like other coronaviruses that infect people, the new coronavirus causes respiratory disease, among other symptoms.

    At their core, coronaviruses contain a genetic blueprint called RNA, similar to DNA. The single-stranded RNA acts as a molecular message that enables production of proteins needed for other elements of the virus.

    Bound to this string of RNA are nucleoproteins—proteins that help give the virus its structure and enable it to replicate.

    Encapsulating the RNA genome is the viral envelope, which protects the virus when it is outside of a host cell. This outer envelope is made from a layer of lipids, a waxy barrier containing fat molecules. As well as protecting the precious genetic cargo, this layer anchors the different structural proteins needed by the virus to infect cells.

    Envelope proteins embedded in this layer aid the assembly of new virus particles once it has infected a cell.

    The bulbous projections seen on the outside of the coronavirus are spike proteins. This fringe of proteins gives the virus its crown-like appearance, from which the Latin name corona is derived. The spike proteins act as grappling hooks that allow the virus to latch onto host cells and crack them open for infection. Like all viruses, coronaviruses are parasites that are unable to thrive and reproduce outside of a living host.

  • Social distancing during coronavirus, explained by an expert

    6:29

    To fight coronavirus, we need to change how we live.

    Read more about the coronavirus pandemic at

    “Social distancing,” also called physical distancing, is the best way to slow the spread of coronavirus and save lives in your community. It means leaving home as little as possible, keeping six feet away from others in public, and generally just limiting in-person social contact. But the rules of social distancing can be sort of blurry and confusing. Can you have close friends over for dinner? Can you visit relatives? Can you get on a plane if you’re wearing a face mask? What is life even supposed to look like without social contact?

    We spoke with University of Pennsylvania social epidemiologist Carolyn Cannuscio about how we should think about social distancing, and what measures we should each be taking to do our part in slowing down the pandemic. Practicing social distancing properly isn’t easy, she says. But it’s also the best thing that each of us can do right now in the service of public health.

    Why some Covid-19 vaccines were developed faster than any vaccine ever.

    Subscribe and turn on notifications (???? ) so you don't miss any videos:

    Researchers working on Covid-19 vaccines have smashed speed records, bringing new vaccines from development to distribution in less than a year. They did this with the help of billions of dollars of unprecedented global investment -- but also, in some cases, with a new type of vaccine technology.

    There are four traditional types of vaccines, and they all require the growing and handling of live pathogens in a lab, a time-consuming process than can add months or years to development. But two new types of vaccines skip that step altogether by moving that work from the lab to our bodies. mRNA vaccines, like the ones from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna; and Adenovirus vaccines, like those from Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca; do this by sending genetic instructions directly into our cells, which then produce the harmless protein the body needs to learn to fight Covid-19. Because these proteins are produced from within cells rather than injected from the outside, they may be less likely to provoke adverse reactions in the recipient.

    The result has been a host of vaccines developed faster than ever. But it's also ushered us into a new age of vaccine technology, one in which we can send our own bodies the instructions on how to protect themselves. That technology is already being used to drive research on vaccines for HIV and cancer. These new types of vaccines are weapons we developed to fight the coronavirus - but their real impact is just beginning.

  • What Is PCR Testing for COVID-19?

    1:56

    AACC President Dr. Carmen Wiley gives an overview of PCR testing, which is the most common type of test for COVID-19 and the one that patients are currently most likely to encounter.

  • HOW DOES COVID-19 AFFECT THE BODY?

    5:15

    Coronaviruses (CoV) are a family of viruses that cause sicknesses like the common cold, as well as more severe diseases, such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain – one that hasn’t previously been recognized in humans.
    Coronaviruses cause diseases in mammals and birds. A zoonotic virus is one that is transmitted between animals and people. When a virus circulating in animal populations infects people, this is termed a “spillover event”.
    How does CoVID-19 affect the body? The virus is fitted with protein spikes sticking out of the envelope that forms the surface and houses a core of genetic material. Any virus that enters your body looks for cells with compatible receptors – ones that allow it to invade the cell. Once they find the right cell, they enter and use the cell’s replication machinery to create copies of themselves. It is likely that COVID-19 uses the same receptor as SARS – found in both lungs and small intestines.
    It is thought that CoVID-19 shares many similarities with SARS, which has three phases of attack: viral replication, hyper-reactivity of the immune system, and finally pulmonary destruction. Early on in infection, the coronavirus invades two types of cells in the lungs – mucus and cilia cells. Mucus keeps your lungs from drying out and protects them from pathogens. Cilia beat the mucus towards the exterior of your body, clearing debris – including viruses! – out of your lungs. Cilia cells were the preferred hosts of SARS-CoV, and are likely the preferred hosts of the new coronavirus. When these cells die, they slough off into your airways, filling them with debris and fluid. Symptoms include a fever, cough, and breathing difficulties. Many of those infected get pneumonia in both their lungs.
    Enter the immune system. Immune cells recognize the virus and flood into the lungs. The lung tissue becomes inflamed. During normal immune function, the inflammatory process is highly regulated and is confined to infected areas. However, sometimes the immune system overreacts, and this results in damage to healthy tissue. More cells die and slough off into the lungs, further clogging them and worsening the pneumonia.
    As damage to the lungs increases, stage three begins, potentially resulting in respiratory failure. Patients that reach this stage of infection can incur permanent lung damage or even die. We see the same lesions in the lungs of those infected by the novel coronavirus as those with SARS. SARS creates holes in the lungs, so they look honeycomb-like. This is probably due to the aforementioned over-reactive immune response, which affects tissue both infected and healthy and creates scars that stiffen the lungs. As such, some patients may require ventilators to aid breathing.
    The inflammation also results in more permeable alveoli. This is the location of the thin interface of gas exchange, where your lungs replace carbon dioxide in your blood with fresh oxygen you just inhaled. Increased permeability causes fluid to leak into the lungs. This decreases the lungs’ ability to oxygenate blood, and in severe cases, floods them so that you become unable to breathe. Sometimes, this can be fatal.
    The immune system’s over-reaction can also cause another kind of damage. Proteins called cytokines are the immune system’s alarm system, recruiting immune cells to the infection site. Over-production of cytokines can result in a cytokine storm, where there is large-scale inflammation in the body. Blood vessels become more permeable and fluid seeps out. This makes it difficult for blood and oxygen to reach the rest of the body and can result in multi-organ failure. This has happened in the most severe cases of CoVid-19. Although there are no specific treatments for coronaviruses, symptoms can be treated through supportive care. Also, vaccines are currently in development.
    What can you do to protect yourself from CoVid-19? Basic protocol comes down to regular hand washing, avoiding close contact with anyone coughing or sneezing, avoiding unnecessary contact with animals, washing hands after contact with animals, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs prior to consumption, and covering your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing. Respiratory viruses are typically transmitted via droplets in sneezes or coughs of those infected, so preventing their travel stops the spread of disease.

    Introducing COVID-19 Explained (with Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine). This week we're answering questions around asymptomatic testing in Nova Scotia.

    Wondering about how to get a COVID-19 test? Asymptomatic testing is being held in Dartmouth (PCR test at the Zatzman Sportsplex for 16-35 year olds) and Halifax (rapid test at the Halifax Central Library) this weekend.

    If you have symptoms, use the COVID-19 self-assessment:

    If you have been at a site listed in an exposure notice and testing is recommended, you should immediately self-isolate and use the COVID-19 self-assessment:

  • Introduction to Coronaviruses : Hosts, Symptoms, History of SARS and MERS

    7:21

    Lesson on Coronaviruses (SARS, MERS, COVID-19): Viral subtypes, Coronaviruses are a family of RNA viruses that are important viral pathogens in animals and humans. There are four classifications of coronaviruses, with two that are important causes of infections in humans. Coronaviruses can cause both respiratory tract infections and gastrointestinal infections in adults and children. Signs and symptoms are variable dependent on the coronavirus involved. Animals can be both infected and be hosts for the coronaviruses. Transmission of these viruses between species can lead to mutations and development of novel coronaviruses, which can lead to human epidemics and outbreaks. In this lesson, we also discuss a brief history of past human outbreaks and epidemics involving coronaviruses, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and the new Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
