The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of terminology to people and understandably it can be confusing trying to keep up. So here is the glossary of a pandemic!

We’ve put together a quick glossary of common words to help you engage with articles and question topics as they come up.

Things like: what’s the difference between SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19? 🦠

Who is a carrier? 👥

What does a ventilator do? 💨

What is herd immunity?

Use our glossary of a pandemic to help navigate through news and media about the pandemic!

Our definitions are split over 3 categories:

  • Viruses, Diseases and Patients
  • Testing, Tracing and Lab work
  • Treatments and Therapies
