It was an informative course. Most information was already being practiced by myself and others but reviewing in academic and clinical form was helpful to take it as true instead of street knowledge.

The course was informative with the resources and information that was available at the time the course was completed. Since our knowledge of the virus is very fluid, a few things are not up to date.

Warning -- An excellent course however I was given the understanding that this course offered a free certificate. Now Coursera want me to pay for it. I'm happy to update my review when the free certificate comes through.

I did almost ten courses online on COVID-19 since last one week. But the course "COVID-19: What you Need to Know" is one of the best one in term of course content, its structure, organisation, video and quiz. In summary, I can protect my family members and my friends from the COVID-19. Also, course motivated me to implement some strategies in my organisation about prevention of COVID-19.

Do have a look at the syllabus.

The content is highly informative, yet concise and easy to understand and grasp.

I learned what the virus is, how it is detected, how it presents itself in imaging, how the RT-PCR test works, the correct way to put on a N95 mask. It did not waste time on the basics such as how to wash hands yet touched upon self quarantine rules and how to be prepared with plenty of fluids. It explained sensitivity and specificity beautifully and tackled how we need to stop the spread on an individual level as well.

Very useful, highly recommend.

This is a wonderful course and provide all the information required for a common man and health care professional about Covid-19 management, testing and treatment. I believe this should be translated into many languages and made available to public on social media platforms such as facebook whatsapp etc.,

I have no words to describe the course, it's a gem of a course for healthcare providers to get a clear picture of the COVID-19 and help prevent such outbreaks in future. The most important thing I liked about the course is that it is so up to date.
