The Coronavirus pandemic has affected most parts of the world to a greater or lesser extent, and the death rate has been very high and it continues to rise. When we first launched this course, we were just going into lockdown and since then we have had relaxations and further lockdowns to control the spread of the virus. Restrictions at different levels, are likely to continue in order to keep the spread of the virus to a minimum which has become harder with new variants of the virus as it mutates.

There are different restrictions in many parts of the world from full lockdowns to restrictions in social interaction and hand and general hygiene will be a part of our lives for a long time to come.

Although we are not seeing the infections and deaths we have seen in the peak of the infection, the virus is still here and still infecting and ultimately killing people. We still need to follow strict rules on social distancing and hygiene to try to help slow the spread of the disease.

The concerns we have now with Coronavirus is keeping levels low and rolling out the vaccine as fast as possible to the nation to control its spread and lower the impact of the virus on the population.

Treatment for people with COVID 19 is much better now than it was at the start as more is understood on how the virus affects the body and the better ways of stopping patients getting worse, but people are still getting very sick with COVID and dying.

This course does not tell you rules for your region, you must find this out from official websites.
