Many wonder, why do certain coronaviruses cause more severe disease than others? This module aims to provide the background needed to understand coronaviruses and more specifically, the molecular testing available for the detection of SARS-CoV-2. There have been a few important studies performed and published, and although the world is still learning, this module answers come of the common questions related to molecular testing for COVID-19.
