Tracking across a nation

This video shows experts describing the networks needed to track coronaviruses in Argentina.

Being able to track viruses across a nation requires an entire network of scientists and health workers. In this recorded lecture you will hear from Dr Mariana Viegas, from the Proyecto Argentino Interinstitucional de genómica de SARS-CoV-2 (PAIS) on how this network was used for genomic surveillance and tracking of coronaviruses in Argentina.

Do you know of the local networks used for genomic surveillance in your own country? Please add their names or websites in the comments section and share with your educators and fellow learners.
