COVID-19 Ultimate Resource List

There’s so much information about the novel coronavirus COVID-19 on the internet that it is hard to keep up with the onslaught of information. We wanted to compile the ultimate list of reputable resources for clinical providers to access when they need to, at a moment’s time.

Since information on COVID-19 is rapidly changing, these resources are not specific papers or blog posts, but rather websites that are maintaining up to date information on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management. Resources span all types, including website behemoths like the WHO and CDC, as well as twitter accounts for people who get their news from social media.

Since this is an ultimate list but we don’t pretend to have ultimate knowledge of all resources, please send us resources that we may have missed and we will add them on here! We also acknowledge that this list is U.S. centric because we are from the States, but we would love input on resources for other countries so we can make this a more international list.

For the most up to date information:

Epidemiology:

Academic:

Clinical/Practical Management:

  • University of Washington – the holy grail of practical documents developed by people who are currently battling a COVID-19 outbreak. All documents can be utilized by others and adapted for their own institutional protocols.
  • University of Kentucky – have assessment, triage, and testing algorithms for use
  • University of Nebraska Medical Center – fantastic protocols on donning on/off PPE, videos, as well as other in-hospital quarantine protocols
  • IDStewardship – a very thorough, but easily read overview of potential treatment options for COVID-19 and how/when to use them
  • University of Liverpool – charts on drug drug interactions with experimental therapies for COVID-19
  • CIDRAP – focuses on the health policy aspect of COVID-19 news
  • Society of Critical Care Medicine – online training modules for disaster medicine, resource availability in U.S., and other fantastic resources for front-line clinical providers

Immunocompromised hosts:

Clinical Trials:

  • ClinicalTrials.gov – a currently-recruiting randomized controlled trial of remdesivir for COVID-19 treatment
  • CURE ID –  an FDA and NIH supported website where you can report and see new uses of existing drugs for difficult-to-treat infectious diseases. Download their mobile app too!

Blogs:

Podcasts:

  • TWiV – a podcast by virologists discussing virology; with recent episodes on COVID-19
  • IDSA Podcast – has weekly podcast series “Coronavirus: What’s happening now?”
