On February 2nd 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic was accompanied by an equally dangerous 'infodemic', characterized by an over-abundance of information and the rapid dissemination through internet channels of what the WHO refers to as 'myths and rumors' about the disease.
These myths and rumors have terrorized populations worldwide, and have been a major impediment to understanding the pandemic problem and coming up with solutions.
So a couple of weeks ago i began researching and compiling trustworthy sources of information as well as objective and actionable analysis of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
These sources are all gathered here, in order of relevance and importance, starting with doctors who are on the front line of the fight, and then the knowledge authority in the USA on acute respiratory diseases and their spread, Johns Hopkins University.
I refer to these sources any time i am looking to get an objective picture of how the pandemic is progressing, and most importantly, for practical advice on how to avoid catching the virus and what to do if you do get sick.
My hope is that publishing this list of sources will assist you in feeling confident that you're getting information not tainted by profit seeking and political partisanship.
Advice to make sure you don't get the disease, but also that you don't fear the disease so you can continue living your life
