State not releasing detailed COVID outbreak data

As Indiana sees its number of COVID-19 cases surge, some Hoosiers might be wondering where the biggest outbreaks are happening. A busy party center in the suburbs? A business conference center downtown? Gyms, bars and restaurants in the hippest neighborhoods?

How Does COVID-19 Spread Differently Than The Flu?

Each year, scientists look to the Southern Hemisphere to get a clue as to how flu season up north might play out. The flu season below the equator, which typically runs June through August, gives us an idea of which strains are circulating and how intense the Northern Hemisphere’s flu season, which usually sees an uptick around early November, could be.

Scientists explain what aerosols are, how airborne particles can transmit the coronavirus, and how to protect yourself.

SARS & MERS Bisa Hilang Ditelan Bumi, Kalau COVID-19 Piye?

Wabah SARS, MERS dan COVID-19 pada dasarnya disebabkan oleh kelompok virus yang sama yaitu virus corona. Namun dua wabah pendahulunya bisa 'hilang' dari peredaran sementara yang terakhir justru makin mengganas dan belum bisa 'dijinakkan'.
