Webinar: Molecular Approaches for Clinical and Public Health Applications to Detect Influenza and SARS-CoV-2 Viruses

December 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn critical information about molecular approaches for clinical and public health applications to detect the influenza virus and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Presenters from the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) will review the most up to date guidance on clinical testing for influenza, including situations when influenza and SARS-CoV-2 are co-circulating in a community or other setting. In addition, presenters will provide in-depth discussion on cycle threshold (Ct) values from SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic assays and their correlation with viral load and infectiousness. Presenters will also discuss SARS-CoV-2 sequencing applications for public health.”
