Imperial college London are offering a course on the Wu.

It is free. I'm joining up. https://www.coursera.org/learn/covid-19 come on in, the water's lovely!

To be honest, it could be rubbish or invaluable. I don't know yet. Coursera courses vary massively, from very, very hard to laughable.

Sounds nice!

Imperial College is where Neil Ferguson is as well, although he's not an instructor for this course:

Neil Ferguson (epidemiologist) ... He is the director of the Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA), head of the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology in the School of Public Health and Vice-Dean for Academic Development in the Faculty of Medicine, all at Imperial College, London.

I take quite a bit of Coursera courses. Definitely agree Techno that there is a varying range of difficulty. Most of the ones I do are in coding of some sorts. I'll have to take a looksee in my free time.
Be prepared! It may be time....^_^v
