Episode Description

This week on The Method Section, Tom tackles diseases in a population. With the current activities in the world some people may be confused about what disease is in the first place, how are they caused, and through what organisms and methods are they transferred? How do the health administrations and governments of the world model disease transmission and decide what measures to implement and when do they know if it’s getting better or not? Join Tom as he takes a look at the coronavirus, how it and other viruses spread, and what you can do to help prevent it from spreading more.
