‘How COVID-19 virus infects and kills’ subject of May 28 WHSC webinar

Government COVID-19 restrictions are loosening, but the disease continues to spread in large numbers, including workplaces.

Confronted by this reality, this week’s Workers Health & Safety Centre COVID-19 webinar will take a deeper look at the characteristics of the viral hazard that confronts us all.

This webinar will discuss the likely origins of the COVID-19 virus, its routes of transmission and its method of infection. We will answer questions about why this virus is so contagious – and why some workers get sicker than others. We’ll also review what more can we do in our workplaces to prevent COVID-19 exposures.
