About this event

As COVID-19 spread around the globe in March 2020, we had to learn a whole new language: Social Distancing, Superspreader, Asymptomatic Carrier. Huh? Many of us were taken by surprise, but many veterinarians were NOT. Veterinary research on coronaviruses in cats helped us anticipate what might happen in humans. In this fascinating talk, Dr. Gregg Dean shares his research on FCoV (Feline Coronavirus) and FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) in cats and compares it to what we know about COVID-19 in humans.

Join TEDxMileHigh in collaboration with Morris Animal Foundation at this online adventure to learn more!
