In our first episode, we get a brief refresher on COVID-19. We've all been exposed to a ton of information about the new coronavirus, but it can be easy to forget the basics - what is it? Why is it called a coronavirus? How can I stay safe? We chat with West Virginia University's Dr. Lisa Costello, a pediatric specialist, to talk about the virus.

In this interview-driven series, “WVU and the Coronavirus” will examine what we already know about COVID-19, find out the latest information about the virus, explore how RNA viruses like coronaviruses work, and learn how the University community has responded to the global pandemic.

Written by Stacey Elza, Wendy Holdren and David Ryan. Narrated by David Ryan. Sound mixed by Sean Hines.
