Coronavirus Virtual Event Series

A novel coronavirus emerged in China in late 2019; it has been officially named by the World Health Organization (WHO) as COVID-19. LabRoots will be working to educate the community about this pathogen in an ongoing series of virtual events.

The First and Second Events of our Coronavirus Virtual Event Series were a great success! It is now available for on-demand viewing. Our next set of presentations will go live on September 17th.

June 17th Keynote Speaker: Stephen S. Morse, PhD, FAAM, F.A.C.E.

This virus is a member of the coronavirus family and is zoonotic, or transmissible from animals to humans, and is thought to have originated in bats like other coronaviruses. Researchers are working to learn more about how this virus made the jump from animals to humans, probably through an intermediate species.

The COVID-19 virus has already infected tens of thousands of people worldwide. In China, hundreds have been killed, leading the World Health Organization to declare an international health emergency, one of only four that have ever been declared.

Researchers have found evidence that the virus can be transmitted by people that don't have symptoms. Scientists are working to find ways to treat the fever, respiratory illness, cough, and breathing difficulties it causes.

You can learn more from this event about:

  • The Origins and Symptoms of the virus
  • Testing, Research, and Diagnostics
  • Clinical Manifestations of COVID-19
  • Prevention, Containment, and Transmission

This free event does not require any travel, and will remain ongoing; webinars will continue to occur in the future as we find out more about this pathogen. The content will be available for unlimited, on-demand viewing. The global community will be able to interact using chat sessions and live-streaming. This seamless connectivity will be available on any desktop or mobile device so you can view, learn, and interact.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the Coronavirus Virtual Event Series and virtual event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

Continuing Education
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this virtual event series, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation.

All you need to know about 2019 Novel Coronavirus (CoVID-19)

CoVID-19 is spreading with wildfire speed, to date, there are 215,565 of confirmed CoVID-19 cases and 8893 covid-19 related deaths in the world and these numbers are being updated constantly (view current outbreak status). Many countries, including the U.S, are now in a state of a public health emergency. There is no known medication or vaccine to this virus, and currently, the only measure of defense is social isolation and hand hygiene. Here is what we know so far about the CoVID-19 virus. Keep safe and make sure you follow the CDC guidelines.
