Hi @RSpence, there was new content added in March but it’s been added in the first week. I’ve gotten confirmation that the teaching team is updating the course right now and you can expect to see updates within the next 48 hours – thank you for your patience!

@Jaime Alejandro Vargas Córdoba, you can enroll in the course at any time and go through the course at your own pace.

I’ve been watching videos of Imperial College London School of Public Health and they are very informative. I like the way it is always updated, so whenever there is a new video, I open it and watch it.


Also, this is my main way to hear about COVID-19, there is a Youtube channel called Agenda Free TV and the host is doing live broadcasting for long times. I usually watch his videos to know crucial updates and news because he is following many people on Twitter and he gets updates from those people all the time. He is doing such a great job!


If we know that the white blood cell count is between 6e10 and 9e10, what things can be done so that the patient is able to need it to follow the blue curve?

Also, what is so important that happens at day 13 of infection?

Hello Laura
 In previous days I started the course on COVID 19 taught by Imperial College of London, so far I found it very interesting from an epidemiological point of view, however I wanted to know where I can get information on the genetic composition of this Virus? I think maybe this aspect has some relation to their ability to spread quickly, I think maybe this aspect has some relation to their ability to spread quickly.

Hello @Laura, thanks for this last link.

On “Science Matters: Let's Talk About COVID-19”  got an email from coursera 10 hours ago warning about a relaunch. There’s already new content and they’re working on more to come.

Regards to you all.

Best regards,






I found your course useful:
"Practical Time Series Analysis" to make the following predictions about intensive care in Italy:



Badge is also running a series of video-lecture on coronavirus posted in Youtube scientifically discussing medical matters and these are also very healthy for medical practitioners.

Also, as I am also interested on the implication of enhanced community quarantine’s implication to mental health, I found a lot of valuable resources too in TEDConnects and TedX which discussed some practices to manage to emotions: anxiety, anger, depression, and grief.
