April 8 and Covid 19

Possibly some are wondering how I get my information regarding COVID 19. I can tell you for certain that a place I do not trust for news is the media. I still go to those sights at times to see what is being communicated, but there are huge gaps in what they say. And the media likes the drama! Unfortunately medical information that is scientifically evaluated lags a little bit behind. However there are places on the internet that have real-time statistics (or as close as we can get), and there are medical organizations giving solid information. You have likely seen some of these, but maybe not all of them.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ (A cool statistics website for lots of things including coronavirus.)

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 (Johns Hopkins statistics page)

http://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america (Projections of needs – this sight will make you feel optimistic)

https://nextstrain.org/ (For people who might be intersted in the mutations of the virus)

https://www.icnarc.org/ (For frequent updates of how treatment is going in the UK. Because they have a national healthcare system, they can get all the data quickly from all the hospitals)

https://www.medcram.com/courses/take/coronavirus-outbreak-symptoms-treatment/texts/11193784-introduction-please-read-first (This is a medical education website I use to help prepare lectures for our interns. It has been doing good COVID-19 updates which I have appreciated)

https://www.jwatch.org/covid-19 (Possibly too many articles to read)

Of these above I use Worldometer, Johns Hopkins, and MedCram the most, although I am eager for ICNARCs weekly updates.
