With the scale of COVID-19 infection and mortality rates increasing rapidly, and many of us becoming increasingly compelled to make changes to lifestyles to adapt to the virus, we thought we would share some important, useful, reliable and veriable evidence-based resources to help keep informed and understand the rapidly changing scientific knowledge base on the pandemic, both medical and social.
With thanks to WAME for pointing us towards some of these resources.
