QUIZ: How well do you know COVID-19 pandemic terms?
Do you know, for example, the difference between local transmission and community spread?

With the novel coronavirus pandemic raging since early 2020, it’s likely you’ve had enough time to learn about health and disease outbreaks.

You may have learned how masks work, why it’s important to keep your hands clean, and why we’ve had to hold off gatherings for at least a year and a half.

But with the science of COVID-19 constantly evolving – vaccines have been rolled out and variants of the virus have developed – more and more scientific terms are appearing in public advisories and news reports. 

Keeping up with the new information is crucial to survival. How well do you know your pandemic terms? Take this quiz to find out.
