Experts on COVID 19
COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a contagious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). First detected in China in late 2019, it quickly spread around the world and spawned a continuing global pandemic that has killed millions of people. WPI experts on COVID-19 can address many aspects of the disease and its impacts, including the genetic structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, how to model of the spread of the disease and the effects of testing and treatment, methods for contact tracing, the importance of high-speed communications during pandemics, and the development of robotic systems for diagnosing and treating patients.
