Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a serious concern, but the mass hysteria and panic sweeping the world is only making matters unnecessarily worse for everyone (particularly for hospital workers and public health professionals).

Scientific illiteracy and mass overreaction to fear mongering headlines and misinformation have led to panic buying of essentials such as toilet paper, long-life milk, and canned goods.

But the good news is that if everyone calms down and approaches the problem with level heads, we can “flatten the curve” and contain it much sooner.

With this in mind, I devised a short coronavirus quiz to test your knowledge on the basics of hygiene and virus transmission. While this quiz is geared towards COVID-19, it is also relevant to all seasonal flu viruses.

Take the quiz below and check your answers at the bottom.
