Since the beginning of 2020, the media has been filled with news about a novel virus that spread across the globe in less than 4 months. But, what is a virus? Where do they come from? How do they replicate? How can we get infected? What research is currently ongoing to find new antiviral therapeutics? This session will cover all these questions and much more!
