Back in September, we gave you a heads up on MIT’s free course on COVID-19. As we mentioned, “COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 and the Pandemic” runs from September 1, 2020 through December 8, 2020. And it features a combination of MIT faculty and guest speakers, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, covering the science of the pandemic. Since our original post, Dr. Fauci’s presentation, “Insights from the COVID-19 pandemic,” has gone online. You can watch it above. Then find all of the other lectures here.
MIT’s course has been added to the Biology section of our meta collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.

Wash your hands
And don’t touch your face.
As grandma Fauci says
Today, the CDC , in addition to telling us who we can and cannot have-over for the holidays, also told us drinking alcohol (the stuff we sanitize our hands with) and loud music help spread the CCP-virus. This is no longer about the pandemic, but something more sinister. Those people talking about “The Great Reset” make more sense every day!
WW, this isn’t about how adolescents react to being told what to do. It’s about taking responsibility for everyone’s health during a health crisis that is getting worse because of careless anti-science ignorance.
Please stop spreading goofy conspiracy theories and take this pandemic seriously.
