The University of Southern California and Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania have filmed a 360-degree virtual reality video that demonstrates COVID-19 treatment practices to prepare medical staff in remote locations for surge responses, The Daily Pennsylvanian reports.
The video was created specifically for healthcare providers who have been exposed to high levels of COVID-19 patients in critical condition. Medical staff can access the video on YouTube and USC’s website through a computer screen or virtual headset.
