WiRED Releases Updated
Coronavirus Module

Designed for Group Presentations

Note: Based on the latest research data from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, WiRED has updated its training module for COVID-19, the Novel Coronavirus now affecting countries around the world.

The new coronavirus is a global threat. People hear a lot about the virus, but many still don’t understand how it is spread, treated or prevented. Schools, civic and faith organizations and their leaders need up-to-date, accessible information to provide members with accurate, understandable and useful information.

WiRED International’s recent Coronavirus Module is the answer. The module offers a general introduction to the virus which describes the infection and its close relationship to other coronaviruses, how it is spread, its incubation period and symptoms, treatment and most important — its prevention. The module can be projected onto a screen or displayed on a large format TV, making it ideal for group training.

Why is WiRED’s module an essential information tool?

  • It is FREE of CHARGE for all to use online or to download to portable devices.
  • It is evidence-based (developed entirely on research from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
  • It is available in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Armenian.
  • It is designed specifically for group presentations.
  • It takes a group about an hour to complete.
  • It is regularly updated as new research emerges.
