COVID-19 and HIV how we can learn from pandemics

This illustration, created by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

In times of uncertainty and crisis, clear information saves lives. This is as true on a national level as it is in the clinic. As with the HIV/AIDS pandemic in 1984, medical diagnostic companies like Cavidi once again find themselves in a position to help provide that vital information to stem the tide of a global pandemic. I can give you my assurance that we do not take this responsibility lightly. Cavidi will continue to work through this current crisis to give healthcare providers the information they need to better manage this pandemic and care for their patients.
