How Well Do You Know The Coronavirus?

As the Coronavirus, aka Novel Coronavirus, aka COVID-19, aka SARS-CoV 2, continues to spread with each passing day. We remain locked in our homes, waiting and wishing for the day that we can see our friends and families again and life can return to normal. The 24-hour news cycle has plenty to cover, with new developments breaking at a near-constant rate. While we continue to be inundated with information from everybody and their mother, it becomes difficult to determine if you are reading a legitimate article or one of the thousands of unsubstantiated false troll articles designed to appear real. A good rule of thumb is to only read your news from accredited, preferably unbaised news outlets, as well as primary sources such as the CDC and WHO. Additionally, be sure to research any unsourced information, especially before sending it to others. This quiz will test your knowledge on the Coronavirus and maybe teach you some of the hardline facts about the virus that will keep you and those 6 feet away from you safe and illness-free.
